Grub Hub Worker Braves The Floods in New York For Food Delivery
Over the weekend our extended families in New Orleans, LaPlace, Grand Isle, and other surrounding parishes were dealt a major blow with Hurricane Ida. While many thought we had seen the last of Ida, recent videos and photos from New York have surfaced and show that Ida is still in rare form. The streets of New York are unlike anything that I have seen before and that's underwater. No one is truly mentally prepared for what will happen and I am sure New York was not prepared for this.
There is a video floating around of a Grub Hub delivery driver who is moving through the waters of the flood and making a delivery. The identity of the individual is not known, however, I am sure it will be within the next few hours. To see the diligence of this person going through the waters with their bike to make a delivery is something I can't say that I feel good about. I am sure that there may be individuals who are not able to leave the home due to disabilities or even finances. But if this is indeed someone who is just wanting to order something I would have to question their morals a little bit. Also seeing this employee out in this weather makes me look at the company a little different as well.
While this is devastating, to say the least with the weather conditions there, it makes me want to ask about protection for workers in this line of work. Also if this person really needs the income then we have to look at the government in a different light as well. Many individuals obviously need their income in order to make it in this world. It's sad to see people have to almost place themselves in harm's way in order to make a living.
