For most people, when the economy is doing well, job security is the last thing on many people’s minds. But since the emergence of coronavirus, millions of Americans all over the world have suffered job loss due to the pandemic, and finding a new one may be even harder during this recession.

With the emergence of the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control has issued various solutions to reduce the spread of the virus, including orders to stay home. Many Americans are indeed staying home to reduce the spread, but in doing so, it’s heavily impacting their livelihood.

This pandemic has impacted the lives of everyone, from serious illness to death, but if there’s one positive takeaway from all of it is its impact on society’s perception of lower-income jobs. Jobs that were once looked at as “entry-level” or low-paying jobs, have now been deemed as “essential businesses.”

The people working in these positions typically, live paycheck to paycheck and some don’t even have access to sick pay or healthcare… people in these positions are called “essential employees.” But before the pandemic, these people weren’t looked at as essential, they were simply looked at as “regular” workers.

That’s not saying that people in higher-up positions aren’t essential, because certain ones are, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the typical list of jobs that have the most financial security looks a little bit different now. Let’s take a look at the new and improved list of top jobs that offer the most job security since the emergence of the coronavirus.

Top Jobs With the Most Financial Security During the Coronavirus

Grocery Store Employees

When people think of coronavirus heroes, the first people that come to mind are doctors, nurses, and nursing assistants… Not to get things misconstrued, medical professionals are definitely the heroes that have helped keep our nation alive during the pandemic, but there is another group of heroes that has played a pivotal role in keeping the nation alive as well, and that is our grocery store workers.

According to northjersey.com, grocery store workers are the “unsung heroes” of the coronavirus. People forget that the grocery workers are just as much on the frontlines helping customers just as much as nurses are in treating patients.

Ever since the coronavirus has shaken the world to its core, the level of respect and appreciation for grocery store workers has increased dramatically. These overlooked workers are what the government calls “essential employees,” and to have a job in this field, you are very valuable now more than ever before.

Coronavirus has definitely changed the world’s perception of what grocery store workers do, and because of that, the job security in this field will always be in high demand. To all grocery store employees, you are appreciated; you are valued. Thank you.

Physicians

What better time than now to start your career as a physician? Since the emergence of the coronavirus, doctors have been needed now more than ever before. Yes, there will always be a need for doctors but with pandemic going on, there seems to be a shortage of doctors now.

To flatten the curve, doctors are now offering telehealth options now, and there are several doctors that are in favor of digital healthcare options. Yes, certain things can’t be done digitally but for everything else like standard virtual visits and writing prescriptions… those can all be done virtually, while still providing the same level of care.

But, of course, doctors are still needed on the frontlines to aid in testing and treating patients battling the virus. If you are a doctor that wants to help flatten the curve, here is a physician job search engine to find jobs in family medicine. Your assistance is needed.

Pharmacists

The world is in dire need of pharmacists now. Although there isn’t a cure for the coronavirus, there are treatments for some of the symptoms associated with the virus. Everything from inhalers and cough medicines to upper respiratory antibiotics and nasal sprays, the coronavirus takes a major toll on the body, especially for those with compromised immune systems.

Without pharmacists being out on the frontlines providing people with the medications prescribed by their doctors, the fatality rate may be higher than what it already is.

Truck Drivers

If you can recall, there was once a point in time not very long ago where there was an extreme shortage in toilet paper, hand sanitizers, and antibacterial cleaners like Lysol and bleach products… Well, how do you think those products hit the shelves of various stores? It’s from truck drivers.

You see these big 18-wheeler trucks on the road all the time but you never think about just how essential they are to society and the world of retail. The coronavirus has shed a bright light on these “newly essential” employees. Just remember, if it wasn’t for them leaving their families at home to drive overnight to get truckloads of toilet paper and antibacterial product to stores, nobody would be able to practice the sanitizing habits

Bringing clean water – Christopher Kenny’s Preservation Earth Project

Published

on

Science plainly shows that a human can survive three weeks without food, yet most individuals cannot survive three to four days without water! Dehydration sets in, and the person will go into shock and become vegetative even if they continue to breathe. In other words, water is an essential requirement. A living thing cannot thrive without it. Nonetheless, it is a horrifying truth that billions of people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 

In developed countries, when everything from technology to luxury is available, receiving clean water at home is as ‘natural’ as breathing fresh air. Most individuals in advanced nations may not pay much attention to it, but this is not the case for the rest of the globe. Many countries continue to lack access to clean water sources or water appropriate for human use. Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene at home should not be limited to the wealthy or those who live in cities. These are some of the most fundamental human health requirements, and all countries must ensure everyone has access to them.

The Preservation Earth Project (PEP) made its way to Tsaile, New Mexico. Over time, uranium mining, fracking, and pesticide abuse damaged the water supply, resulting in a high occurrence of numerous illnesses. Approximately 35% of the Navajo people do not have access to flowing water, and some must go to a remote location to fill barrels with water from a polluted local spring. 

There is no doubt that climate change is boosting storm strength. Recent natural catastrophes have heightened the need for groups to step up and give support, answers, and relief to individuals affected by such natural disasters. The Preservation Earth Project is a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and solutions to help society transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

A look back at Christoper Kenny’s life

Chris Kenny was born in Summit, New Jersey, on May 4, 1961. He was one of twelve children. In 1980, he received a B.A. in economics and finance from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina. He also attended New York University, earning a commercial real estate management degree from the Schack Institute. Since 2018, he has served as the head of Strategy and E-trading at Hartfield, Titus, and Donnelly. Kenny started his career in the U.S. In 1985. He worked as a Treasury Bond Broker. He formerly worked at Bonds.com as the director of fixed income sales and technological development. His academic background is in business and finance. Chris is passionate about developing and promoting renewable energy, mainly when it is used to assist people in need. The potential to aid those in urgent demand as a result of a human-caused environmental or natural disaster is not just a philanthropic act but also a once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity.

He used solar power on mobile platforms as a backup power source for emergencies, water purification, and water pumping.

He has over 38 years of experience in finance as a salesperson, broker, trader, and investor.

Making clean water available to everyone

In 2012, Kenny founded The Preservation Earth Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides assistance, education, and alternative energy solutions to help society shift to renewable energy. It was involved and aided Haiti several times after the 2010 earthquake, providing portable solar electricity for water purification and medical facilities. In 2020, the business devised a solution for the Navajos’ contaminated water source. They collaborated with engineers and local officials to build, produce, and install a solar-powered water filtration system for the Navajo people of Tsaile, New Mexico. Other activities have included providing portable solar power to the “Cajun Navy” for rescue and clean-up in areas devastated by the 2015-2021 hurricane season in Louisiana. 

The project designed, delivered, and installed a solar-powered filtration system that will provide clean drinking water to the local Navajo community 365 days a year for many years to come. Several more initiatives are in the works to provide safe drinking water to Native American communities on the Navajo Reservation.

President’s letters of gratitude

President Jimmy Carter sent Chris two heartfelt letters encouraging him to continue his charitable work. He suggested calling Habitat for Humanity and asking if they were interested in collaborating on a few projects. He and Kenny both helped out at the charity.
