    Tillis: Restaurant workers shouldn't be forced to wash hands after bathroom breaks

    Tillis: Restaurant workers shouldn't be forced to wash hands after bathroom breaks | Fox News

    Tillis raised the issue when speaking Monday to the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington. Restaurant chains such as Starbucks should be able to skip obligatory hand-washing by workers, he said, "as long as they post a sign" and take other steps to alert the public.

    "Let them decide" such issues, Tillis said, adding: "That's probably one where every business that did that would go out of business. But I think it's good to illustrate the point, that that's the sort of mentality we need to have to reduce the regulatory burden on this country."

    Well, a concerted effort hepatitis outbreak would cleanse the GOP of a lot of this stupidity.........

    One really does not want to shake the hand of GOP Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina.

    Wouldn't you have to regulate the warning sign? /:

    Worked in a pizza shack for a time, and I am pritty sure that my boss would have fired me if I had made the pizzas without washing my hands.

    But I do not doubt that there are enought sleazy and disgusting "restaurants" out there who dont care if their employees wash their hands or not.

    This guy is a complete moron. He wants to reduce the regulatory burden and then turns around and states the restaurants would be regulated to have a sign displayed stating workers do not have to wash hands.
    My god.

    If you listen to what he actually said, he's using hand washing as a metaphor for government regulation and doesn't actually suggest that restaurant employees not wash their hand. in his example though he does replace the hand washing regulation with another regulation warning the public which would drive the market to reject any business that didn't assure that employees washed hands.

    This is just more political nonsense for the weak minded who take things out of context.

    This isn't the way to come to the attention of the nation when newly elected. But I don't think it's going to change county health regs.

    Of more real concern may be employees who don't wash their hands while prepping food. Many restaurants require gloves while preparing food but not while prepping.

    The market can handle food safety.
