"Business owners around the country are offering up a lament: 'no one wants to work.' A McDonalds franchise said they had to close because no one wants to work; North Carolina congressman David Rouzer claimed that a too-generous welfare state has turned us all lazy as he circulated photos of a shuttered fast-food restaurant supposedly closed 'due to NO STAFF.'
Most of these complaints seem to be coming from franchised restaurants. Why? Well, it’s not complicated. Service workers didn’t decide one day to stop working — rather huge numbers of them cannot work anymore. Because they’ve died of coronavirus.
A recent study from the University of California–San Francisco looks at increased morbidity rates due to COVID, stratified by profession, from the height of the pandemic last year. They find that food and agricultural workers morbidity rates increased by the widest margins by far, much more so than medical professionals or other occupations generally considered to be on the 'front lines' of the pandemic. Within the food industry, the morbidity rates of line cooks increased by 60 percent, making it the deadliest profession in America under coronavirus pandemic.
Line cooks are especially at risk because of notoriously bad ventilation systems in restaurant kitchens and preparation areas. Anyone who has ever worked a back-of-the-house job knows that it’s hot, smelly, and crowded back there, all of which indicate poor indoor air quality. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Environmental Protection Agency recommended increasing indoor ventilation to fight the virus, but such upgrades are costly and time consuming. There is no data available on how many restaurants chose not to upgrade their ventilation systems, but given how miserly franchise owners are with everything else, one could guess that many, if not most, made no upgrades at all.
Ventilation issues are deadliest for line cooks and other back-of-house jobs, but there are other reasons why food workers’ morbidity rates shot up. Food workers are much more likely to be poor and/or a racial or national minority, and poor people and black and Latino workers are much more likely to die of complications from the coronavirus.
Restaurants are often intentionally short staffed, making it difficult to take time off, so sick workers likely still came to work (and infected others in the process). Bars and restaurants are COVID-19 hotspots, and service workers and customers alike get sick after prolonged restaurant exposure. The difference is that many of those customers have health insurance and other safeguards to prevent them from dying of the illness; 69 percent of restaurants, on the other hand, offer their employees no health benefits at all.
When coronavirus is spread at restaurants, and restaurant workers make little money and rarely earn health benefits, it’s no wonder morbidity rates are so much higher for food service workers. But rather than collectively grieve the deaths of tens of thousands of the people who serve us and keep us fed, and keep such tragedies in mind when considering the state of the food-service industry labor market today, business owners and their political lackeys call these workers 'lazy.'
There are, of course, also living, breathing people who have decided they do not want to risk their lives for $7.25 per hour and no health benefits. That is a perfectly rational decision for the homo economicus to make. Given how dangerous restaurant work is during a viral pandemic, if restaurant owners really wanted more workers, they would offer living wages, health benefits, and adequate personal protective equipment. But all the wage increases in the world won’t bring back the dead.
There aren’t enough people working in the service industry, and service bosses have somehow turned that into our problem, into something we ought to be ashamed of. We shouldn’t fall for it. Profits accumulate because of labor — without workers to exploit, the owning class can’t get richer. Capitalists cannot exploit the labor of the dead, so when large swathes of the working class die, they turn their ire on the living.
This is a barbaric response to mass tragedy. Workers across the country and the globe are dead or grieving. We shouldn’t risk further tragedies for a paltry minimum wage."
- Sandy Barnard, "Service Workers Aren’t Lazy — They Just Don’t Want to Risk Dying for Minimum Wage." Jacobin, 5 May 2021.

Tunnabora Peak (13,563 ft) via Cleaver Col & Mt Carillon (13,553 ft) via Russell-Carillon Col
Tumblr media
After some light autumn storms, we had an unseasonably warm stretch of weather across late November. The daily satellite views showed very little lingering snow in the southern portion of the High Sierra, which gave me an opportunity to complete my goal of climbing 20 SPS peaks in the 2020 calendar year. I was two peaks short of this goal, so I hoped to find a twofer. After some research I learned that Tunnabora Peak and Mt Carillon can be climbed together in a manageable 20 mile day. Asaka gave me her blessing, knowing that I had been keenly focused on this goal for several months, so I drove down to Lone Pine by myself where I spent the night at Trails Motel. The next morning, I drove up Whitney Portal Road feeling lonely and wondering what I had gotten myself into. I parked right in front of the Mt Whitney Trail sign around 5am and began my hike up the main trail shortly after. I felt a sense of calm seeing the line of headlamps up the canyon ahead of me. I wasn’t the only psychopath on the mountain that frigid morning. I took a right up the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek, which was much steeper than the Whitney Trail. It had been a few years since I had been up this route, but my memory served me well and I had no route finding challenges, even in the dark.  The town of Lone Pine twinkled in the predawn light.
Tumblr media
As it got brighter, I could spot people ahead of me and behind me. I would see multiple parties throughout the day, but I never crossed path with anyone else. After about an hour and a half of climbing, I reached Lower Boy Scout Lake. The morning alpenglow was just touching the tip of Mt Whitney.
Tumblr media
From here I split off form the Mt Whitney Mountaineer’s Route and climbed north out of the canyon towards Cleaver Col. There is a use trail which I didn’t find at the start, but it didn’t matter because the terrain was very easy.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
At around 10,800 ft, the route becomes more gradual and follows a creek. I considered filling up water here, but I decided to wait until a little higher up.
Tumblr media
When I was finally ready to top off my water, I couldn’t find any that was accessible. Most of it was underground, and I didn’t feel like climbing back down. I thought there would be a tarn beneath the cleaver, but I struck out. I didn’t expect to find any accessible water until my way back down, since I fully expected Lake Tulainyo to be frozen over. Spoiler alert; I was right.
Tumblr media
I would have enough water if I rationed what I had a little. I aimed for the weakness in the granite walls which led to Cleaver Col.
Tumblr media
I found my pace severely slowing at this point. The elevation combined with general fatigue was making itself known.
Tumblr media
I cut back left, finding some class 3 options that took me higher to easier terrain.
Tumblr media
Gambler's Special stood behind me. The Inyo Mountains stood further back across Owens Valley. Mt Inyo and Keynot Peak were easily identified.
Tumblr media
I made it to the top of Cleaver Col 4.5 hours after starting off. My pace was acceptable, however I hoped to have been faster. Tunnabora Peak stood across the frozen Lake Tulainyo.
Tumblr media
To my immediate right was The Cleaver. When climbing over Cleaver Col, you don’t climb over the lowest point, but slightly to the southwest of the saddle.
Tumblr media
I descended directly down to the shore of Lake Tulainyo. Mt Russell stood to my southwest.
Tumblr media
-Table Mountain
Tumblr media
I considered walking across the top of the ice, but I felt it was safer to just walk around.
Tumblr media
Sections of the shoreline walk were tedious. There was steep sidehilling and loose rock in certain sections. As I walked along, I tried throwing several large rocks onto the ice to see if I could break through to get some water, but it was thick and solid. There was no chance that I could break through.
Tumblr media
Once at the northern shore of the lake, I began climbing back up towards the ridge. I encountered some terrible loose sand. It was extremely difficult to get any reliable footing, and I quickly regretted my route. I had ignored my preloaded track which accessed the ridge further east. After a miserable slog, I made it to the top of the ridge. While I still had several hundred feet to climb, I at least could avoid the sand for the rest of the way.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I began to really feel the effects of being over 13,000 ft. I wasn’t acclimatized like I was in the summer, so I focused on deep breaths and finding a methodical hiking pace. I felt very dizzy at times and I was slow, but it was the best I could manage.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
After a false summit, the true summit came into view.
Tumblr media
I made it to the summit just after 11am, 6 hours after starting off. 
Tumblr media
To the north were Mt Barnard, Mt Tyndall, Trojan Peak and Mt Williamson.
Tumblr media
To the northeast were White Mountain Peak and Waucoba Mountain.
Tumblr media
To the east were Mt Inyo, Keynot Peak and New York Butte.
Tumblr media
To the southeast were Telescope Peak, Lone Pine Peak and Mt Langley.
Tumblr media
To the south were Mt McAdie, Mt Whitney and Mt Russell.
Tumblr media
To the west were Mt Kaweah, Red Kaweah, Black Kaweah, Kern Point, Milestone Mountain, Midway Mountain, Table Mountain and Thunder Mountain.
Tumblr media
That was 19 SPS peaks for the year. I was on the cusp of achieving my goal of 20. I descended the southern slopes, hoping for easy passage along the western shore of Lake Tulainyo towards the Russell-Carillon Col.
Tumblr media
-Kaweah Peaks Ridge
Tumblr media
I passed by what were most likely bighorn sheep tracks.
Tumblr media
-The Cleaver and Mt Carillon
Tumblr media
-Mt Russell
Tumblr media
The traverse over to the base of the col was fairly easy, with some minor ups and downs over talus fields at the end. There was still no accessible water anywhere, but by this time I felt I would make it to the end without any serious trouble.
Tumblr media
And so began the final push. In the week leading up to the hike I had worried about snow and ice on this north facing slope making my climb more difficult, but there were no extra challenges to be had.
Tumblr media
-Tunnabora Peak
Tumblr media
I heard some voices and spotted a couple climbers making their way along Mt Russell’s East Ridge.
Tumblr media
The final bit of class 3 to reach the col was very straightforward.
Tumblr media
I took a break here, drained, but knowing there was only about 200 feet of climbing remaining.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I picked a route just to the right of the top of the ridge. I again started to feel the effects of altitude, and I resumed my pressure breathing.
Tumblr media
-Mt Whitney
Tumblr media
There was a short scramble to reach the high point. For some reason I had expected a walk up. I reached the summit at 12:40pm, about 1.5 hours after leaving the summit of Tunnabora Peak. Down below me to the east was Gambler’s Special. Beyond that were the Inyo Mountains.
Tumblr media
To the northeast was The Cleaver.
Tumblr media
To the north were Lake Tulainyo and Tunnabora Peak.
Tumblr media
To the northwest was the Great Western Divide.
Tumblr media
To the west was Mt Russell.
Tumblr media
To the southwest were Mt Muir and Mt Whitney.
Tumblr media
To the south were Lone Pine Peak and Mt Irvine.
Tumblr media
I tried to sign the summit register but it was wet and a complete mess. Rather than sign the register to prove my ascent, I decided instead to snap a photo of the register.
Tumblr media
-Lake Tulainyo
Tumblr media
I could just make out people still making their way up along the East Ridge Route. I was already done with my second peak of the day, but they still hadn’t reached their first.
Tumblr media
Once back at the saddle, I crossed gradual sandy slopes down the standard route of Mt Russell. It had been many years since I last did Mt Russell, so I didn’t have a clear memory of what exactly to expect. There were a lot of footprints in the sand and multiple cairns. Then came the big drop down to Upper Boy Scout Lake.
Tumblr media
This was a long loose descent. My memory was slowly coming back to me, and I had a lot of “oh yeah” moments.
Tumblr media
I laid down in the soft sand near Upper Boy Scout Lake, taking a well deserved break. I looked at Lone Pine Peak above, which I had considered as a possible bonus peak, but I had had enough.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I felt the most dangerous part of the day was crossing the iced over North Fork of Lone Pine Creek. I put on my MICROspikes for the crossing, but I still felt vulnerable on these slippery sections. A fall here would spell disaster.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I lost the use trail for a short time and thrashed around in some brush. Lower Boy Scout Lake was visible down below.
Tumblr media
Once at the outlet of the lake, I spotted the use trail leading towards Cleaver Col, officially closing my loop.
Tumblr media
The rest of the hike down was steeper than I recalled. There was a lot of pressure exerted on my feet and knees. I took it slowly.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
-Ebersbacher Ledges
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I felt a big sense of relief once I made it to the Whitney Trail. I enjoyed the gradual trail the rest of the way.
Tumblr media
I started to develop a big headache from my lack of water, but this would go away after rehydrating in the car over the next several hours.
Tumblr media
It felt really good to complete my goal of 20 SPS peaks in the 2020 calendar year, especially with all the challenges this year had put in front of me. Maybe next year I will go for 21 peaks.

Favourite woman-directed films I saw in 2018
It’s funny because when the year started I thought I could never watch 52 films by women, considering that I usually barely watch fifty films a year, total. Then I watched 306 new-to-me films, out of which 105 were directed by women.
I saw so many good woman-directed films that I thought it would be hard to choose ten to make this list, but then I realised that I only had to include those films that absolutely blew my mind, and bam! Ten already.
Winter’s Bone (Debra Granik, 2010)
On Body and Soul (Testről és lélekről, Ildikó Enyedi, 2017)
We Need to Talk About Kevin (Lynne Ramsay, 2011)
River of Grass (Kelly Reichardt, 1994)
The Midnight Swim (Sarah Adina Smith, 2014)
Raw (Grave, Julia Ducournau, 2016)
M.F.A. (Natalia Leite, 2017)
Daisies (Sedmikrásky, Věra Chytilová, 1966)
Always Shine (Sophia Takal, 2016)
Revenge (Coralie Fargeat, 2017)
Very broadly speaking, these ten can be divided into three categories. There’s gorey, imaginative, feminist genre -- Revenge, M.F.A., Raw; there’s visually and/or narratively boundary-expanding cinema -- Daisies, Always Shine, The Midnight Swim, We Need to Talk About Kevin, On Body and Soul; and then there are the indie stories about marginalised people, which might be my favourites of all -- here, River of Grass and Winter’s Bone.
When 2018 started I had only seen one film by Kelly Reichardt, and none by Debra Granik. Now they’re both among my favourite filmmakers. When I saw my first Kelly Reichardt film, years ago, I thought Wow, some people do make films about actual people. I’ve seen all of them now, and I liked all of them, but it wasn’t that hard picking River of Grass for this list -- there’s something so Carson McCullers, so Flannery O’Connor about the story, and visually it is so dreamlike.
I put Debra Granik together with Kelly Reichardt because their stories feel similar in many ways (and both feel similar to Agnès Varda’s), and seeing Winter’s Bone I was just completely blown away. It’s one of those films I would unreservedly call a masterpiece, and recommend to absolutely everyone. What places it above Leave No Trace (which I put as my number one new release of 2018) is the plot, and the ending especially, both completely surreal and mundane, like a cherry on top of spectacular acting and visuals worthy of Dorothea Lange .
Another slap in the face was We Need to Talk About Kevin. Together with a few other films in this list, it made me ponder what film can really do in terms of creating intricate, media-specific experiences that ultimately serve to provide a more rounded understanding of reality and what it means to be a person. We Need to Talk About Kevin was the first of these and probably had the biggest impact on me. Lynne Ramsay really is one of the few people with a completely unique vision.
I put Daisies, Always Shine, The Midnight Swim and On Body and Soul in the same category, although they don’t have a lot in common with each other, because they all have this aspect of visual and/or narrative boundary-pushing. It is so incredible that Daisies still feels like that to a first-time viewer today, even though it came out more than fifty years ago.
I saw Always Shine and The Midnight Swim around the same time and keep associating them in my mind for the nods to David Lynch, indie feel, and non-linear storytelling. Probably The Midnight Swim impressed me more, because it was the first time (and only, so far) that I saw a first-person narrative that looked quite like that.
On Body and Soul belongs in the same area of this mental map mainly because of the dream sequences. Before I saw it I probably would have found it impossible to talk about dreams in a way that didn’t feel recycled, but this managed just that. The juxtaposition of the wild forest animals at night with the cattle in the slaughterhouse during the day walks such a fine line between surrealism and social commentary, and the slaughterhouse sequences are all filmed with such incredible tact -- which only serves to make them more shocking.
Then there are the great genre films. Raw was fantastic, in part because it is so rare for a French person such as myself to find a French film to her liking, but also because everything about it felt so different -- it is firmly set in the horror genre, but it also draws from such a wide range of influences. M.F.A. and Revenge mirror each other in many ways, because they’re both rape-revenge films, a sub-genre I am incredibly glad and grateful that women are tackling in such interesting and challenging ways. I liked M.F.A. better, maybe, because it felt more real, and the ending better-thought-out, but if anything, I’d recommend a double-feature night to watch both.
Great films that didn’t quite make the cut, in no particular order:
Addicted to Fresno (Jamie Babbit, 2015): best sex comedy about actual grown-ups
I Think We’re Alone Now (Reed Morano, 2018): best post-apocalyptic “everyone is gone from the surface of the Earth but us” film
Ginger & Rosa (Sally Potter, 2012): best Cold-War England drama
Meek’s Cutoff (Kelly Reichardt, 2010) : best contemplative Western
Into the Forest (Patricia Rozema, 2015): best post-apocalyptic survivalist feminist film
Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi, Agnès Varda, 1984) : best film shot in my area of France
Khadak (Peter Brosens and Jessica Hope Woodworth, 2006): best science fiction film that takes place in Mongolia
Over time, I’m finding it easier and easier to watch more woman-directed films, both because I know where to look and because I’ll find it easier to relax and get into any genre at all when I know there’ll be infinitely less chance of rampant misogyny ruining an otherwise perfectly good film. It seems barely believable, now, to think that five years ago I didn’t know one single woman director, when clearly the quality and the variety are there, the work is there, and it stands so tall on its own.
