1. I'm a cashier at a grocery emporium in NJ.

From January to three weeks ago, the store was almost empty, leaving management no choice but to cut hours. I lost half my pay.

Now, I'm getting extra hours. I'm exhausted but grateful.

As NJ has told residents bars and restaurants have to close by 8:00 p.m., they're stocking up on their chips, chicken, and liquor. My belit is laden with purchases, resulting in easily 10 bags per customer. Sometimes they need two carts to take it away.

Our store has a computerized system with check-out. Each item is tabulated into a program that automatically puts in an order for restocking if a certain number is reached. Let's say we sold 500 packages of chicken breasts. Automatically a computerized order goes out to load a truck and bring us 500 more packages of chicken breasts and is on the road within one hour. We haven't had empty shelves yet.
