This article demonstrates how the Capitalist class uses empty. platitudes to keep the people it exploits placid, while continuing to fuck them over. A hand-written thank you note, the designation of "hero"? That's all people get for vital work that increases their risk of contracting a deadly virus, work without which our situation would be even worse? Of course, because the Capitalist is sooner parted from his head than his workers' money.
These people deserve much higher wages. Calling them heroes doesn't help their material conditions.
