It's not a stupid move on Kemp's part. On the contrary, it's very calculated. Here's the deal.
Kemp mandates restaurants reopen, whether I reopen dining rooms or not. I file for business interruption insurance, it does not go through since I am "allowed" to operate full capacity. My landlord can demand all their money, since I am allowed to fully operate.
Furloughed staff that is collecting unemployment insurance have to come back to work or I have to let them go. Their unemployment insurance then goes on my tab. If things blow up again, they are still on my tab not on the states, since they are no longer employed.
Guys, this is about screwing the working class and small business, not about helping us.
