To celebrate July 4, we honor the workers who are keeping our country going.
For the past few months, the phrase “essential workers” has become common in our culture.
Often, it refers to our health care professionals and support staff who are on the front lines fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
But they aren’t the only ones who risk their health every day. Others — including those who work in retail, delivery services and cleaning services — comprise the backbone that has kept our country standing. So, in celebration of the Fourth of July 2020, we honor those citizens, the ones who kept shelves stocked, businesses clean and essential goods available.
