No Hooters sidewalk cafes in Europe, if the European Parliament has their say
MEPs dilute ‘sunshine directive’ (emphasis mine):
Members of the European Parliament have voted against a measure that would have made employers responsible for workers’ exposure to sunlight. Critics said the clause would oblige bosses to make builders wear shirts and tell barmaids to cover their cleavage.
I guess any Hooters outdoor cafes in Europe would feel the effect of the law?
But supporters said it would help protect people who work outside from the danger of skin cancer.
The EU law on radiation at work will now leave it to each member state to decide whether employers should protect staff from the sun.
However, EU member states may yet attempt to overturn the parliament’s decision.
Nanny, nanny, nannyism.
Update: It’d be regulation number #90,001 in Germany
