Should outdoor workers be legally allowed to refuse to work during heat waves?
For example, the heatwave in the southwest U.S. is to the point where, at 120 degrees, it’s so hot that smaller airplanes have actually been grounded from flying. American Airlines has had to cancel flights of regional jets out of Phoenix; their maximum operating temperature is 118 degrees. (hot air is less dense than cooler air, making it difficult for the planes to get into the air.)
You are the Big Broadcast Judge & Jury… what’s your verdict? Should an outdoor worker be able to refuse to work in stifling heat?
