Kroger Grocery stores are offering a standardized ‘hero bonus’ to staff keeping their stores open in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
The hero bonus will boost worker’s pay by $2/an hour across the board.
To recognize our associates' hard work, we’re providing a Hero Bonus – a $2 premium above their standard base rate of pay to hourly frontline grocery, supply chain, manufacturing, pharmacy and call centers. Learn more: https://t.co/IBw5kyTXqZ pic.twitter.com/sBcrXfrUE5

“Over these past few weeks, our associates from across the country have showed the true meaning of the word ‘hero.’” Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen saluted the vital efforts of the company’s workforce in announcing the bonus, recognizing the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus epidemic and its effect on grocery stores and its workers.
The bonus is limited to hours worked between March 29th and April 18th, although there may be a need to extend it if the volatile national situation subjects grocery store workers to the same chaotic and hazardous conditions.
The company has reported seeing a 30% increase in total sales during the coronavirus epidemic, and has borrowed $1 billion to ensure that its stores are properly staffed and stocked.
Americans have seen the vital contribution firsthand of occasionally overlooked workers in fields such as healthcare and grocery retail have made during the epidemic. Grocery store workers have been officially recognized as emergency workers by states such as Minnesota.
Kroger deserves credit for recognizing the efforts of its workers, and it’s well worth questioning if the modest increase in their pay should be made permanent.
Former British Spy Chief Believes COVID-19 Was Created in a Chinese Lab ‘As an Accident’
The security expert points to evidence to back his claim.
Sir Richard Dearlove, who was the former leader of the MI6 secret intelligence service in Britain, has said that he believes COVID-19 was created in a Chinese laboratory.
Dearlove told The Telegraph that he came to his informed conclusion after seeing an “important” new scientific report indicating that the virus was made by man and did not emerge naturally. The study he cited was undertaken by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London, and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen.
These scientists discovered “inserted sections placed on the Sars-CoV-2 Spike surface,” which allows the virus to more easily invade cells. They also noted that the virus was “significantly different from any Sars we have studied” in their report. Although they stopped short of calling it a deliberate bioweapon, they came to the conclusion that the virus was in fact man made.
Dearlove, who led MI6 from from 1999 until 2004, believes that this news will eventually be used to compel China to pay “reparations” to nations across the world for the damage they have caused with their virus.
“I do not think that this started as an accident,” Dearlove said while appearing on the “Planet Normal” podcast.
“I think it will make every country in the world rethink how it treats its relationship with China,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported for many months on how it was obvious that the coronavirus pandemic began as the result of Chinese mad science:
A molecular biologist is blowing the whistle regarding reports that the Chinese coronavirus was not designed as a weapon of bioterrorism.
Richard H. Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, believes that it is entirely possible that the coronavirus could be a bioweapon and those claims should not be dismissed before serious inquiry can be conducted.
“A denial is not a refutation,” Ebright said in reference to Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli, who works at the research lab in Wuhan that has been widely speculated to be behind the coronavirus outbreak.
The research facility in Wuhan opened up in 2017 despite objections that highly infectious diseases could spread from the center…
Ebright praised Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for his willingness to push back against Chinese propaganda with regards to the origins of the coronavirus.
“After concealing the virus for many weeks in December and then minimizing its severity for most of January, they then peddle an origin story about the food market in Wuhan.” Cotton said during an interview with The Daily Caller.
“Given their dishonesty and the proximity of these labs, which we know were working with coronaviruses, it is only reasonable and responsible for us to ask the question and demand the answers,” he added.
The truth is finally coming out about the origins of coronavirus, which is probably why race riots were promulgated by the fake news media at this very moment.
