Mitch McConnell and his cronies have drawn a line in the sand: no more support for the American people as we weather a once-in-a-lifetime economic and public health crisis unless we make it impossible for vulnerable workers to seek protection from bad acting employers who are trying to force people to return to work before it's safe to do so. No employee should have to choose between returning to work and their safety.
Both employees and employers are looking to the government for guidance on how to balance economic and public health realities. Corporations should not be given a free pass to endanger their employees for profits.
Liability protections for employers should be narrowly tailored as the economy re-opens to both protect workers and good-faith employers and guidelines need to be issued to help companies across the country re-open safely.
