Whole Foods Worker Sends Mass Email Calling for Hazard Pay

An email sent to all Whole Foods team members reads, “Whole Foods does not have team members’ well being at heart.” At the beginning of the pandemic, grocers around the country instituted things like hazard pay and benefits, paying workers more and allowing them more flexible sick time in recognition of the risk they faced. Most of those benefits quietly ended in the summer, and though the pandemic’s winter wave is the worst it’s ever been, grocery workers no longer have the same protections or pay at the majority of places. Whole Worker, an...

Many found the comment inappropriate. On Saturday, after Joe Biden had been...

The Psychological Power of Calling Someone a Karen

Karen used to be such an innocuous name. Not anymore. Now it’s an insult. Karen is the entitled, officious middle-aged white woman who wants to speak to the manager. More ominously, she and Ken, her male counterpart, are racists. They are “unashamed exploiters of white entitlement.”Have you heard about the woman in San Francisco who called the cops on a Filipino man who was stenciling “Black Lives Matter” in chalk on his own property? She was named Lisa, but she’s a Karen. So, too, is the most notorious Karen, Amy Cooper. When a Black man...
