i cant imagine anyone wanting to go to NYC. even the motel 6 there is like $150 a night if u need a room. only those in the top 1% of income and totally out of touch with the rest of the country would ever live there. rich liberals like u are completely out of touch with the working class and thats why u want to keep everyone locked down and why all those needing income to pay their bills want the casinos reopened immediately, virus be damned.

its hyprocritical to say the poorest of the poor should be the ones suffering for this virus by losing their income, to save the lives of maybe 100 people per day. yet u would never ban smoking, and driving cars, which kills more like 500 people a day total. they dont have a luxurious home to hole up in and take a few months vacation like u do.



Yeah, it's nothing but ten million one percenters all crowded together

That billionaire in the two bedroom on the fifth floor was complaining about his incinerator smelling bad the other day and how he had to pay an extra fifty cents on the subway when the fares went up.

Ain't it the truth

Essential workers complaining they have to work during this crisis

Non-essential workers complaining they can't work during this crisis.

when the first casino somewhere in the USA reopens sometime in early may hopefully (as opposed to late may early june) i hope the management is smart enough to let all the employees who are too scared to go back to work the right to stay at home without worrying about losing their jobs (this will avoid lawsuits) and the ones who desperately want to start getting tips again (which they wont get in unemployment) the right to come work. instead of telling their dealers who gets to come work on that day, and who has to stay at home.

leave it up to those who want to, and those who dont want to instead of deciding for them.

Highly unlikely

I don't see what the basis for a lawsuit would be. If a business is open and you don't want to work you can't sue.

The employer owes the employees a safe work environment.
I can see a strong case for people not going back to work. Especially older, minority ones that are at the highest risk. What do we do with those people?
I saw a new report that people are most contagious before they are symptomatic so unless you are immune, every stranger you pass puts you at risk.

Hazardous work environment, for starters.

They will point to the government which is giving the all clear to open.

No job is reopening without that go ahead.

It becomes pretty difficult to argue a company followed an unsafe work environment when it's backed by the government.

I am not saying they are correct. The government may be totally wrong. But the business that reopens will have a pretty strong defense

That's just not true.

Perhaps you mean anyone can sue anyone for any "actionable" reason.

You can also say anyone can "initiate" a lawsuit. But if it's determined"not actionable" by the judge the lawsuit is meaningless and goes nowhere.

Furthermore, (and somewhat to your point that anyone can sue anyone) that's a double edged sword. They can sue back the complainant for filing a frivolous lawsuit

Whether they win or have it dismissed who knows

NYC, followed by Orlando, followed by Las Vegas.
