....is a term used by the elite. It makes the worker puff out their chest, brag about being Essential, and go to work like good little drones. If a two week stay at home order will help defeat this virus, I think EVERYONE should stay home. Health care workers, cops, everyone. Shut it all down, no choosing your favorites to stay alive, and leaving your "Essentials" to catch and give that virus to their families. Essential Personnel = Expendable Personnel.
