Working Lunch: Strikes, liability, supply-chain challenges surround restaurant reopenings

Plus, the CDC’s guidance advocating for single-use plastics

States across the country are slowly reopening following shutdowns due to the coronavirus pandemic, but state and local guidelines are leading to challenges for operators. Align Public Strategies discusses those guidelines, plus other challenges around rehiring, liability and delivery.

The team then talks about why the pandemic makes May Day, a traditional day of action for labor groups, look and feel different this year.

This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidelines calling for business owners and consumers to use single-use plastics, effectively reversing a decade of gains by the environmental community. Working Lunch takes a look at that development and the podcast wraps up with the legislative scorecard.
