Picture this factory of 500 employees, somewhere in the U.S.
In the last two years, more than 80 employees were injured by a specific machine, some very seriously. One employee even died.
Many of the employees are not using the machine correctly. Some don’t even wear the protective equipment provided by the company. Strangely, when the company decided to impose safety training and threatened to fire employees not wearing the protective equipment, some employees protested, claiming it was their right to get injured if they wanted to.
Of course, that factory doesn’t exist.
Of course, it’s an allegory about the pandemic.
As another strange year comes to a close, this is my wish for all my readers for 2022: May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be at peace.
