    “Our View: Cashiers Shouldn’t Have to Put up with Rude Behavior” by MetroWest Daily News is about cashiers and problems they faced at the beginning of the coronavirus with customers and what they were forced to do. This is true and I agree with this because it’s not just at the beginning of coronavirus, I feel that cashiers faced every day with the same problems from the customer’s side. It’s an informative news article.
