In this edition I share Veronique’s Reason.com article on titled, Coronavirus Pandemic Inspires Private Generosity. It’s great that other people are seeing the good in the world.
While many of us turn to the government for answers to the COVID-19 pandemic, others rightfully seek solutions from the private sector. Last week, the Hoover Institution’s Russ Roberts asked his many twitter followers to help “create a list of voluntary (non-coercive) actions taking place right now to reduce COVID-19 spread or impact.” The answers are too inspiring not to share.
First, many of Roberts’ followers shared a list the benefits offered by their employers that help to alleviate workers’ financial hardships or ensure their health is protected. For instance, Walmart, Target, Gap, and many other firms announced that they will provide up to two weeks of paid leave to every worker who is sick or taking care of sick family members.
