Oscar LondoƱo Decries Florida Ban on Local Heat Protections for Workers

Oscar Londoño (’17), Executive Director of WeCount!, was quoted by The Hill discussing Florida’s new law restricting local governments from requiring employers to provide heat protections for workers (“DeSantis Signs Bill Banning Local Heat Protections for Workers,” Apr. 15). “HB433 is an extremist law by Florida’s Republican-led Legislature and industry lobbyists in agriculture and construction who care more about their profits than the lives of the workers who make these profits possible. . . . Instead of offering real solutions for working families, HB433 will endanger the health and lives of thousands of outdoor workers in our state.”
