However, the state of California continues to ignore this fact, instead imposing guidelines that the state itself knows won’t work, which sets us up to standards that are very different from other reopened businesses and state-operated facilities. We want to work with the unions to put people back to work, but these state government guidelines will shut us down for the foreseeable future, forcing tens of thousands of people out of work, leading to the inevitable closure of small family businesses, and causing irreparable damage to communities in Southern California.”
