WWJ-AM: Marick Masters on mask policies for autoworkers
General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler parent Stellantis have reinstated a requirement that employees wear masks in southeastern Michigan where there are high levels of COVID-19. Some of the car makers are saying this is a temporary measure, and that they know masks are uncomfortable for workers, especially as it gets hotter. Wayne State University business professor Marick Masters says this is the world we live in. “I think it’s going to be a recurring pattern until we’re through the pandemic,” he said. Masters said the protocols have kept workers healthy and have kept production going. “Nobody’s perfect. But I think they’ve gone the extra mile. They are very concerned about it. I would give them very high marks for how they have handled this,” Masters said.
