  • They are willing to kill their workers and aren't even trying to hide it
  • Michigan's done some good things, but they haven't given workers any method of enforcement if their employer is creating an unsafe work environment.  There are lots of people in restaurants, offices, and grocery stores who were promised masks would be mandatory and that people would have to maintain six-feet if distance. Everyday you see people not wearing masks and getting right in employees faces.  It's forcing workers into unsafe situations with no protections and no recourse.

    Please. No body is forcing anybody to do anything. Except state Governors. You have two feet and can leave work anytime you like. Oh, you want to sit on your ass and still get your check? Lol, maybe AOC will come through for you. Until then, totally your choice.
  • OSHA's commitment to it's mission had been exemplary.  UAW needs to Morris morph into the FOP.
  • So what are the choices here?

    1. Should the allow workers to essentially strike and continue to pay them?
    2. Should they shutdown the assembly line for cleaning and pay the workers for being idle?

    Certainly, there should be enforcement of masks where they can be used (I don't know...maybe there is a furnace area or something which makes use of masks impossible) and perhaps installation of glass partitions between employees that can be installed (of course, overuse may cause fire or emergency evacuation hazards).

    Perhaps the safest solution is to temporarily shutdown the plant for modernization and maximize automation so that there are fewer workers, resulting in more space between them so they can effectively work with social distance.
