Oregon Governor Kate Brown is as far-left as they come. During this coronavirus pandemic, she’s doing a number on the residents of her state.
This latest story, though, is just bananas!
From Willamette Week:
Oregon Occupational Safety and Health issued a $14,000 fine to Lindsey Graham, owner of Glamor Salon in Salem, for reopening her salon May 5 in defiance of Gov. Kate Brown’s stay-home order.
Graham stated, “I’m being threatened and intimidated and bullied daily by the government. I’m sad that I can drive 20 minutes down the freeway, and that person’s job as a hairstylist is essential, according to Kate Brown. But my job, 20 minutes up the street, is nonessential.“
Graham said during Friday’s press conference that OSHA “illegally deemed” the Glamour Salon hairdressers as employees rather than independent contractors (OSHA does not have jurisdiction over the latter).
She also claimed that Child Protective Services had visited her house and questioned her child. “I’ve never expected such a violent, aggressive, vindictive thing could ever be done to me or my family,” she said, “because I’m trying to earn a living, because I’m trying to work.”
