I think that one of the most interesting questions for courts in these unconstitutional overreaches by states and local governments lies in the determination of who’s essential v. who’s not.
There seems to be a lot of inconsistency in these determinations from place to place. The purpose of this short blog is to consider this determination from the viewpoint of the employee.
In the eyes and mind of the employee, his or her job is essential. Essential to pay their bills and feed their families. Think about that.
It’s a compelling and eyeopening view. And it’s right and a voice that courts must hear.
