The Contrast Between Essential and Non-Essential Work Designations

COVID-19 has drastically changed the landscape of our everyday lives. Many of us have been made to stay indoors risking our mental health, while others have been made to continue going to work and risk exposure. Two of the people closest to me are taking on each of these roles. Taylor Campbell, one of my oldest friends, was furloughed at her massage clinic – shortly after completing her licensing to become a certified esthetician. Another great friend of mine, Oralia Saenz, is a supervisor at Best Buy in the same store I work. Saenz has been steadily working her forty hours a week, adapting to the changes our stores have been going through, and still seeing customers on a regular basis. My goal in creating this timeline was to compare two personal timelines and contrast the designations of essential and non-essential worker.
