Lloyd Blankfein STFU

Former Goldman CEO to Americans: Get back to work

Lloyd Blankfein, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, is the latest billionaire to say it's time for average Americans to get back to work, even if that means more people could get sick from the novel cornavirus.

Blankfein wrote in a tweet Thursday evening that hospitals aren't overwhelmed while nearly all U.S. states begin to allow shuttered businesses and public spaces to reopen. The former Goldman Sachs executive, who was worth an estimated $1.3 billion in late 2019, also questioned whether the economic cost of lockdowns was now greater than the health risk of COVID-19, the coronavirus disease that has killed 95,000 Americans since January.

"Is the public health benefit from broad lockdowns at this point worth such extreme damage to livelihoods?" the former top Wall Street banker rhetorically asked in a tweet.

On Wednesday, the mayor of Montgomery, Alabama, said his city was running out of critical care hospital beds, as the coronavirus spreads to regional cities that have so far been spared the worst of the outbreak.

1. Yes, you should die so you can make more money for us.

FU Blankein.

Wall Street is the reason why we are in this mess. Lowering wages in search of cheap labor while demanding more profits from companies each quarter. And donít get me started on vulture hedge funds!
