The 6 justices who held OSHA lacks power to address Covid because the virus isnโ€™t limited to the workplace are blinded by their ideology. NO risks are โ€œlimited to the workplaceโ€ And, as the 3 dissenters wrote, workers have minimum control over risk in their workplace environments

Health risks not limited to the workplace: All addressed w/in OSHA 29CFR. Bloodborne pathogens 1910.130 Lead 1910.1025 Crystalline silica 1926.1153 Asbestos eposure 1910.1001 Hearing conservation 1910.95 This was an ugly usurp of power by a politicized Supreme Court.

Right. So, these issues under OSHA are now at risk of attack from companies who don't want to pay to prevent/contain damage. This is bigger than COVID, it sure seems like this is an extension of GOP "asks" for corp.donors. Set free by Citizens United. Scary!

Exactly, I had posted this risk existed prior to the Supreme Court decision. In 1970 @GOP President Nixon signed legislation creating OSHA. In 1972 there were 10.9 injuries per 100 workers. Now there are 2.8. The Republican Party has abandoned workplace safety and endorsed death.
