To-go orders can hurt full-service restaurant workers through tips, too. According to restaurant workers surveyed by Lightspeed, 60% say that guests are ordering more food, but tipping the same or less than before the pandemic. Loss of tips is especially impacting workers at full-service restaurants, who can make as little as $2.13 per hour before tips. As those businesses continue to grow takeout orders, workers lose out on potential tips.
Many on-the-ground elections observers have pointed out the naked lies in this NYT regime change screed.

China is planning at least 150 new reactors in the next 15 years, more than the rest of the world has built in the past 35.
China says its plans could prevent about 1.5 billion tons of annual carbon emissions, more than what’s generated by the U.K., Spain, France and Germany combined. For those who see nuclear power as critical to weaning off planet-warming fuels like coal, it’s a wildly exciting experiment at a scale proportional to the problem.
China’s ultimate plan is to replace nearly all of its 2,990 coal-fired generators with clean energy by 2060. To make that a reality, wind and solar will become dominant in the nation’s energy mix. Nuclear power, which is more expensive but also more reliable, will be a close third, according to an assessment last year from researchers at Tsinghua University.
