Not every business is scaling back amid the coronavirus pandemic. Kroger, one of the largest supermarket chains in the U.S., has openings for thousands of new hires across its various businesses. This news comes as many other companies in the service industry are scaling back due to the pandemic.

The article goes on to state the following:

The grocery chain is hiring for over 10,000 positions nationwide, KPRC reports. Based on Kroger’s website, the open positions are for a variety of jobs, including retail clerks and night crew members, across several different states.

Kroger’s CEO, Rodney McMullen, told CNBC’s Closing Bell, “We have relationships with several different other industries where they’re directing their people to us. We have a ton of openings.”

While this should be good news, many social media users responded to the announcement with criticism, saying the grocery chain should be committed to the lockdown.
