Governor Newsom, despite having June 15 set as the state’s reopening date, maintains that vaccination rates will greatly impact reopening. However, this just isn’t enough to save the 1/3 of California restaurants that are out of business for good.
Staffing shortages and mandatory capacity restrictions have seriously wounded the restaurant industry. Furthermore, even as California’s reopening date approaches, not everyone is eager to re-enter into the industry. After suffering layoffs and furloughs, many former restaurant employees want jobs with more security.
An alternative to current leadership in California
Caitlyn Jenner, a former Olympic star and reality TV star, is currently running to replace Newsom as the governor of California.
Jenner continues to point out the disastrous ways in which Newsom’s leadership has hurt California. For instance, Jenner notes that due to Newsom’s high taxes, allowance of mass homelessness, and enforcement of lockdowns, many people are fleeing California.
