A note from 570 KVI's Kirby Wilbur on the state of construction work during the current COVID-19 outbreak in our state.
The private construction industry is essential for our state's economy and the Governor should not have deemed it non-essential. Oregon and Idaho have deemed it essential and only three states have joined Governor Inslee in declaring it non-essential. Please do three things:
1.) Check out the Facebook page Construction is Essential for Washington, like it and sign the petition
2.) Check out the website WeCanWorkSafe.com
3.) Call the Governor's office at 360-902-4111 and ask him to declare the private construction industry essential so thousands of our fellow Washingtonians can go back to work and we can begin the recovery of our state's economy.
You can hear more on this topic during The Kirby Wilbur Show live on 570 KVI AM every day from 3 - 6 PM.
