Questions raised by Bolingbrook Michaels Chicago
Questions raised by Bolingbrook Michaels workers about 'essential' business
After the Governor of Illinois J.B. Pritzker’s “Stay at Home” order, streets of downtown Chicago observed a calm day. Though many people stayed at home, there were some people who were seen disobeying the order by being outside their homes partying or enjoying the lakefront.
The “Stay at Home” order allows the residents of Illinois to check up on their family members and friends, go to essential businesses etc. The order is the start of a long fight.
However, an employee at Michaels in Bolingbrook feels that their business is not essential and still the employer is not shutting down their business for a temporary period of time amid Covid-19. People are keeping themselves safe by staying home and the arts and crafts supply store saw a surge in customers after the order was announced.
People are filing petitions on Change.org for Michaels to shut down during the Coronavirus pandemic so as to not put their employees at risk. The employers should not put their employees as well as their families in danger. The employees have started to feel that they are not valued as human beings. To all this Michaels have not given any statements.
