Latinos/as – Kimberly Torres, 25
By Jennifer Martinez
Kimberly Torres carries out essential work as a curb-side order packer for a major grocery store in Dallas, Texas. Torres says she’s one of the lucky ones; she has limited contact with customers and her employer provides necessary benefits. With her grandmother at home, she still worries about contracting the virus at work.
“I would say it’s 50/50. I do feel safe because everything gets cleaned and disinfected. We have our masks and our gloves on, but there’s times I do feel like I’m taking a risk going to work.”
