THE PROBLEM: MICHIGAN’S COVID RESTRICTIONS PUT JOBS, EMPLOYEE MENTAL HEALTH AND OUR DOWNTOWNS AT RISK

Michigan's job creators need options to resume in-person work so they can collaborate and innovate in the face of pandemic-created challenges. 

But, Gov. Whitmer extended one of the nation’s strongest prohibitions against in-person work for up to six MORE months.

Job creators and employees must be trusted to implement safety protocols and reopen offices, and increase capacity in restaurants, stores and entertainment facilities.

Our voices need to be heard now, because under the current rules:

• Businesses are going bankrupt and jobs are disappearing forever. 

• Downtowns and local governments are being crushed economically. 

• Employees are suffering the negative mental health effects of extended isolation.

 

Gov. Whitmer should work with and trust job creators and employees to use safety protocols to get back to work across every industry.

Provide safety protocols

Trust job creators and employees

SURVIVAL OF OUR ECONOMY

With an office ban in place, Michigan's business leaders' hands are tied. Given data-based safety guidelines, they know best what they need to survive this crisis. 

OUR DOWNTOWN COMMUNITIES

With people unable to work in their offices, and as small businesses go broke, downtowns are collapsing. We must use safety guidelines to

MENTAL HEALTH

Working from home and the resulting isolation is negatively impacting employee mental health.  

THE SOLUTION: SET GUIDELINES AND TRUST BUSINESSES TO REOPEN MICHIGAN SAFELY

The Reopen Michigan Safely coalition of 59 job creators is asking Gov. Whitmer to allow a full reopening of Michigan businesses before we lose more jobs.

 

By removing government closures and restrictions while providing health protocols based on science and data, businesses and employees can develop plans to safely reopen. 

 

Let's #EndTheOfficeBan and #ReopenMichiganSafely!
