When I think of this whole debacle, I'm reminded of a King of the Hill episode from decades back. I can't point you to an exact episode number, but I recall this exchange.
A manager at Strickland Propane had made some executive decisions which riled a lot of the drivers, and this was before Christmas Eve - a prime time for users who had propane-powered homes to get new deliveries. Eventually, enough became enough and those drivers quit. The manager believed that they could just "get by" without them because he didn't think of them as essential, except...those drivers carried HAZMAT qualifications, and propane is considered hazardous.
A workaround was eventually figured out and Christmas was Saved™, but this is the scenario I'm likening to what's going on right now.
Right now, a lot of people are upset about what's going on. These people are more important than previously valued, and the result of their absence is starting to be felt in a lot of places.
The issue is that it's really not up to us to fix this. The company which aggrieved these people needs to make amends and reach out to fix this. Without the help of the community, there's no way that any of this is going to get cleaned up.
To complicate things, the communities which have just been holding back the ever-growing Tide of Crap have had some of their key janitors express their rationale for leaving, and for some people, it seems like rationale that makes sense. At this point, it's not quite equitable to ask the communities to "help" since there's no assurance of top cover from up above. All they'd be doing is fixing the symptom, not the actual problems. What's the use? Is it worth it?
I'd say that this only brings the issue that's started a month ago to a head. If someone needs to step in and do something, it's the company.
