Richard Blau Publishes Article for the Daily Business Review

TAMPA, FL – April 16, 2020 – Richard M. Blau, chair of GrayRobinson's alcohol beverage, food law, and cannabis industry departments, and shareholder in the firm’s Tampa law firm office, published an article for the Daily Business Review. The article, “COVID-19 Pandemic Adds New Stress to America's Food Production System,” sheds light on the recently floated proposal to cut farmworker wages as a means of helping to shore up the nation’s food supply during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Now more than ever, federal, state and local governments need to expand support for the farmworkers who harvest the nation’s food, as well as the truckers who transport those harvests and keep the country’s food distribution system operating,” Mr. Blau emphasizes in the article.  The COVID-19 pandemic has put new stresses on America’s food production system, and he believes, “The smarter, safer and economically better approach is to address the basic needs and protections required by America’s farmworkers and truckers so that they can continue to produce and deliver the food we all need to stay safe.” Read the full article here.
