While the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted many business models, it’s also opened up opportunities for the restaurant industry to leverage its political capital to force systemic changes, namely pushing back against third-party delivery platforms. The team from Align Public Strategies talks about that.
President Donald Trump is advocating for the reopening of the United States. No one knows when that will happen, but what is known is that it will look very different than it did before, especially around worker protections and benefits. The Working Lunch team discusses what the future may hold.
Finally, Align Public Strategies is joined by Ashley Coneff, the director of government affairs for Dunkin’ Brands. She stops by to talk about how her company is managing the crisis, with particular focus on what they are doing about worker safety and community outreach.
The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
