The Point: Fitness for Duty, Season 1


Greetings, Colleagues.

I am not going to claim that expanded bargaining is as compelling as whatever season of whatever television series you watched this quarantine, but you really have been missing something if you have not tuned in yet!  This past week’s episode brought some real drama, to be sure.  But as with any such series, it will take a little bit of setting up to explain why the “reveal” in this episode was so compelling. 

Yes, there will be spoilers.

Click on the link below to ask your legislators to bring back laid off and furloughed workers.  It’s super easy.
