The politics of masks took a significant turn this week as major retailers took unilateral action and mandated that customers wear masks in order to enter their stores. This week on Working Lunch, the team from Align Public Strategies discusses the potential political impacts for the restaurant industry, which has resisted taking similar steps.
Meanwhile, media coverage around Monday’s Strike for Black Lives continues to intensify, signaling that the unions behind it and their labor-community allies will be pulling out all the stops to ensure a signature event. The podcast brings you the latest on that and how operators should prepare.
Working Lunch then updates you on the week that was in the political world, and who’s up and who’s down as a result. The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
