    Retailers in the United States have been criticised for praising their staff as "heroes" for working during the coronavirus pandemic - while at the same time ending a system in which they receive extra pay for dangerous conditions.

    Unions are calling on companies such as internet giant Amazon and supermarket chain owner Kroger to reconsider.
