Who would have thought three months ago that our entire national definition of 'essential' workers would be those that make the lowest paid wages in the US? Yes, I am talking about the ones who stock the grocery shelves, the cashiers, the warehouse workers, the home health aids, sanitation workers, food processors and housekeeping staff. This would be an opportune time for these 'essentials' to strike and demand better wages and obtain benefits. If not now, when? When and if this virus passes, these 'essentials' will have been forgotten. I don't think they realize the amount of power they currently wield.

It's quite interesting.  Here is a link to Kroger pay scale for all jobs

It is as Basser suggests.  Lowest payed.... are cashiers, clerks, baggers, stockers

Middle of the scale would be....... payroll and benefits specialists, payroll administrators, Admin assistants

Top earners being..... IT consultants, electricians, employee relations managers,
