The New Machine

6:00 am. Jose, one of the electricians and from El Salvador, is testing out the new temperature taking machine. After two outbreaks of Covid and having to shut down the construction site along with paying enormous cleaning fees, the company purchased an archway for the workers to walk through that they hold their wrist up to which takes their temperature. The hope is that it will be faster than my having to hold a temperature gun to everyone's forehead in the morning. Puts me out of a job.
