Living in Ignorance: Modern Panic

Title: Living in Ignorance: Modern Panic

Submitted by: Nicole Vogelpohl

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, chaos can be seen in your everyday grocery store, despite the “stay home stay safe” executive order from Governor Whitmer. Panic buying is the new “norm” of 2020. My mini series, “Living In Ignorance: Modern Panic”, displays the chaos inside one Saginaw grocery store, Meijer on Tittabawassee. From one side of the store to the opposite, shelves are empty of so many essential items that many people can only afford to purchase when needed. Low wage workers like myself struggle, and now we struggle more to be able to obtain our necessary items.
