Rite Aid employee fired after asking client to wear a mask or leave

A Pennsylvania Rite Aid employee said she was fired after an angry customer destroyed a store because she asked him to leave because he did not wear a face mask.

Shift supervisor Elena Santiago, 40, told York Daily Record On Thursday, September 3, a young man with a skateboard entered a chain of stores in York, Pennsylvania, shortly after lunch.

The man ignored her first two requests to cover his face with a mask, as required by state law.

She tried to give him one of the masks the store keeps on hand for shoppers, but the man rudely turned down her offer, she said.

“If you’re going to disrespect me, I’ll have to ask you to leave the store,” she recalls when she told a customer, warning him that she would call the police if he didn’t.

When the man threatened to attack her if she dialed 911, she asked the cashier to call other employees to help with the situation.

According to her, the man responded sharply by shoving the cashier into the magazine rack.

Video surveillance footage shows a man throwing displays on the ground and overturning a cash register.

He is then seen exiting the store and smashing the front window with his board.

Santiago said she was fired a few days later, the following Tuesday, and worried that he would not find a new job during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I really don’t get it,” she said.

“I was fired for defending myself. They punish me for defending myself. I think it’s unfair how they dealt with it. “

LUNA Creator Wants to Hard Fork to Save Cryptocurrency and Kill UST Stablecoin

LUNA Creator Wants to Hard Fork to Save Cryptocurrency and Kill UST Stablecoin

Do Kwon has a plan to try to revive the Earth’s ecosystem and its cryptocurrency MOON: Retire current network and UST stablecoin.

South Korean founder of Terraform Labs defended this Monday (16th) that Earth’s blockchain must go through hard fork which will split the current network into two parts. The old version will be called “Terra Classic” and the new one will be simply “Terra”.

With the adoption of the new version of the blockchain, a new cryptocurrency called Luna appears on the market, and the old token is renamed Luna Classic with the symbol LUNC.

In the new Terra ecosystem, UST is abandoned in the old chain, and the updated version of Terra no longer has stablecoin algorithm.

“Land is more than UST,” Kwon wrote. “While UST has been the central narrative of the Earth’s growth story over the past year, the spread of UST has led to the development of one of the strongest developer ecosystems in crypto that is worth preserving.”

Case a offer will be voted on by the community this Wednesday (18), the hard fork that will create the new Earth circuit will take place next Friday (27).

Distribution of the new version of LUNA

If the hard fork is approved, the new version of Luna will be distributed in the form of airdrops targeted at coin holders.

According to Do Kwon’s proposal, Luna will be distributed free of charge to holders and users who make bid current currency version; for UST holders and developers of major Earth applications.

According to Kwon, the Terraform Labs wallet will not be participating in this giveaway, which “makes Terra a fully community-owned network.”

The tokens will be distributed to users who had Luna and UST in their wallet at the time the snapshot was taken, with a record of the wallets and their amounts in the given time period.

To determine the distribution of tokens, two snapshots will be taken: the first entry “before the attack” will be from block 7544914 on May 7, and “launch” will be block 7790000 mined on May 27th.

In total, 1 billion Luna tokens will be issued in the new version of the blockchain, distributed as follows:

25% – community pool regulated by management

1% – emergency allocation for core developers (no crashes)

4% are core developers

35% – holders with Luna (minus Terraform Labs wallet) in snapshot”before the attack

10% – Luna holders (including derivatives) in a snapshot”launch

25% – UST holders in the picture”launch

In order to prevent tokens from being dumped into the market after launch, the proposal states that new holders will be locked by coins (cliff) during a year.

“We believe that this distribution of tokens, in addition to LFG’s best efforts to help UST holders, better takes into account the different interests and time preferences for each stakeholder group and, more importantly, creates the most viable path for the rebirth of the Earth’s ecosystem.” concluded Do Kwon.
