Enough is enough.

I personally don't know a single person in the restaurant industry that has contracted the "deadly" Covid19 (which has a 99.5% survival rate, according to the CDC)...do you???  Why are we being forced to close when Alberta's Chief Medical Officer has stated that less than 1% of all cases can be traced back to restaurants?  We've upped the ante on cleaning, sanitizing, scrubbing, wiping, re-sanitizing and sanitizing again.  

Jobs are essential for not only our livelihood, but also our mental health.  Sitting around binge-watching our favourite shows (sure, this is great if you're not worried about how to pay the power bill) is not the answer.  Suicide rates have gone up.  Divorces are at an all-time high.  Alcoholism has increased.

Please support the hospitality industry, especially the locally owned ones.  I'm sure we all know at least one person in this industry who has been "temporarily" laid off by their employer at the drop of a hat because the Government said so.  There's the favourite coffee shop we all have; the one we can sit in and do our work while soaking up the free WIFI.  We have the place that we went on our first date; the one we go back to on every anniversary and the server greets you by your first names.  We celebrate birthdays, promotions, Fridays, and anything else that merits celebrating!  We drown our sorrows at our favourite dimly-lit pub and the bartender will listen for hours about your day, week, month, year(s) of horrible things.

Please sign, and lets get the many thousands of hospitality workers BACK to work!  We appreciate you more than you'll ever know.


Signed,
One of many frustrated hospitality industry workers.
