A Plea For CoronaVirus Legal Protection – Roger Jenkins Passes

A Plea For Federal Lawsuit Protection Among others, restaurants will never be the same —if they fully recover at all. Distancing is impossible for chefs and others. Wiping down everything thoroughly and consistently after every guest is impossible. Masks are uniformly worn by employees? Forget it. Consistent enforcement of bureaucratic rules for every bar and Restaurant will make customer service wait staff into Gestapo agents. There may only be one fighting chance -- right now -- for Congress/POTUS to enact medical lawsuit restrictions and ironclad protection to businesses and [...]

(A letter from an unemployed oil industry employee to Robin Brena, the lawyer who created a voters initiative to increase oil industry taxes.  The letter was printed by the Alaska Support Industry Alliance.) Dear Mr. Brena: I just lost my job on the Slope, and don’t know when or if I’ll get back on. I used to feel lucky that I survived the support industry layoffs that happened from 2015-2018, when more than 6,000 Alaskans lost their jobs.  I don’t feel so lucky anymore.   Because of what’s happening with [...]
