In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, many businesses are hurting. And we should have some sympathy for them. After all, the stress of survival can force us into undesirable situations. However, some organizations try to get through these difficult times using such repulsive measures, they deserve nothing but pity. And bankruptcy.

From pressuring people to come to work against clear safety guidelines and common sense to begging for a bailout, the Internet users have been making fun of corporate America, reminding that businesses are nothing without their employees.

Too Big To Take Out A Loan And Pay It Back?

Yep they expect every small business owner who's barely scraping by to get these low interest loans from banks to survive. But these multibillion-dollar companies can't do the same thing?

From small restaurants to multinational corporations, the COVID-19 outbreak has delivered quite a blow to the economy. Companies are implementing massive organizational changes to at least try and stay afloat -- with many switching to full-scale working from home and others going all in on delivery.

"I've done a couple of webinars with groups of companies. As of about a week and a half ago, they weren't doing anything, there wasn't anything different," Peter Cappelli, a professor of management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources, told ABC News. The expert predicts, "The big test will come when it goes on for more than a couple of weeks."

They shouldn't get a dime. And because of their stupid decisions people died on their ships. And many many got very sick because they didn't shut down when they should have. And they're not refunding people's money for canceled trips.

When it comes to managing employees, Cappelli said there are good examples out there. So far, "We've seen more companies carrying employees for longer than expected if this had been a financial downturn versus a health-related one," he explained.

But there are rotten apples in the basket, too. Pressure is building on Amazon and other delivery companies to improve protection for workers worried about getting infected with coronavirus. Some workers at US food delivery firm Instacart as well as US and Italian workers at Amazon have walked out, complaining about the lack of protection.

Even US senators have been contacting Amazon boss Jeff Bezos to express concerns.

As a response, Amazon said it had adjusted its practices, including increased cleaning of its facilities and introducing staggered shift and break times. However, union representatives are saying this is far from the truth. "Several employees working at the site use face masks for days instead of having new ones each day," one of them told Reuters.

A group of workers at Whole Foods, which is also owned by Amazon, plan to walk out on Tuesday, regarding similar problems.

Let's hope that human decency prevails and employees won't be put at risk for another dollar.

However, this does not neccesarily imply the companies did bad. The system is partly broken, with wrong governmental incentives and with a strive for efficiency and a neglience for resilience.

And people need to legitimately boycott these places. There's just no way people are going to boycott Amazon though. They're doing interviews all over the country and hurting people into one room and going against all social distancing initiatives yet they're not getting fined or anything else. But if I had 10 people gathered on my porch I could get arrested and fined

The people that give all that money are the same people that are saying that their people should go back to work. But only if they seem healthy and under 55 years old or so. They don't give a s*** about anyone but the 1%.
