Can employers make employees get vaccinated? And will they? w/ Terry Bonnette
Today’s show is driven by a listener question we’ve gotten a lot over the last couple of months.
Can employers mandate their employees get vaccines? Should they? And then we talk about what some businesses are actually doing.
Our guest for this is Terry Bonnette. He’s co-managing partner at Nemeth Law and is an expert on labor and employment counseling and litigation. In his career, he’s dealt with contract compliance and regulatory compliance issues, including, FMLA, Wage and Hour, the American with Disabilities Act and more.
He’s eligible to practice throughout Michigan, Northern Ohio, and all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. So I feel like we got our guy to help us be a bit smarter about what's ahead.

How the global chip shortage impacts Detroit automakers w/ Bloomberg's Gabrielle Coppola
The global silicon chip shortage has made computers and graphics cards more expensive and harder to find. But so many popular products are driven by chips, including automobiles.
There are lots full of pickup trucks and other high-value vehicles sitting missing a few parts, unable to be sold until they get some key parts. And that's not good for our local economy or the workers that rely on it.
Gabrielle Coppola from Bloomberg joins the podcast to unpack what's going on, how long this will last, and some of the impacts we've already seen.
Between troubles for buyers getting the car they want at the dealer, laid off workers because of shortage, or suppliers feeling the pinch as automakers will not make as many cars as they could sell this quarter - this global event has a very real local impact.

A great dispatch from Detroit
As a Michigan native who moved for school a while back, I really enjoy this show as a way to connect to home. Entertaining and informative!
Please stick to your mission statement
I listen to this podcast b/c of your “sharing what to know and where to go in Metro Detroit” . leave the politics out of it. Steve Friess episode was VERY cringe worthy and I had to unsubscribe.
Independent local journalism
Never before has independent local coverage been so important. This podcast does it as well as large news organizations, and adds their own engaging style.
