I’m interested in the way the “Thin Blue Line” design remixes the American Flag.
I’m amused by the quirky way the “Thin Bread Crust” meme remixes the remix.
As I was fact-checking (as I habitually do before sharing) I found a 2018 USA Today article reporting that “drivers/sales workers and truck drivers” suffered 135.9 fatal injuries per 100,000 workers as opposed to 14.6 per 100,000 fatal injuries for “police and sheriff’s patrol officers.” The article cited statistics gathered through the “Occupational Safety and Health Act.”
I’m not sure OSHA collects data on exactly what kind of food is being delivered, but the evidence I found certainly supports the observation that driving/delivery jobs are riskier than law enforcement jobs.
