Last fall, Gov. Whitmer put temporary emergency COVID-19 workplace safety rules in place to help stop the spread of the virus and keep workers safe. But now, the governor is trying to make these emergency rules permanent!
Over the past year, thousands of Michigan businesses have permanently closed their doors and thousands of jobs have been lost for good. Making these temporary workplace rules permanent even after the virus is gone will be a tremendous burden for those businesses who managed to survive. Michigan workers and job providers deserve better.
