No longer "heroes"

I read this in The Atlantic...
 
Who have the essential workers turned out to be? 
 
Mostly people in low-paying jobs that require their physical presence and put their health directly at risk: 
 
Warehouse workers, shelf-stockers, delivery drivers, hospital staffers, home health aides.
 
Doctors and nurses are the pandemic’s combat heroes, but the supermarket cashier with her bottle of sanitizer keep the frontline forces intact.
