You can only turn in 5 green bag per quarter, that means you can only have about 500 can every three months and a family have a lot more than 500 can or bottles in three months it not right that you can’t turn you and in whenever you get the bags full and if you do more than 5 your money locked up

I work at brightwood in madras for starters so obviously the worker shortage has hit us badly! I have been working 11 hour shifts since the beginning of COVID and there seems to be no end in sight everyone is over worked and extremely tired to the point where people call in daily just to get rest

I'm a manager for a gas station I should have about 8 to 10 employees and I have 1. People in this state do not understand how gas stations work but yet are so impatient, so pathetic, and demand to be served the second they pull in, it's getting out of hand! And this state NEEDS TO GO self-serve

Vote with your money what practices you are willing to accept. Early in the Trump pandemic I stopped going to places where their attitudes and practices I felt unsafe. I'm tired of hearing touting their personal freedom at the expense of societal responsibility.

Yes, because we all need to support stopping this virus. Saving American lives, bringing back our economy and our way of life depends upon our actions. If any business can't come to the assistance of the American people, then I'm not shopping there.
