Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Chef Andrew Gruel, the owner of Slapfish restaurants about how stimulus checks and generous unemployment benefits might have hurt more than they helped, the lies about restaurants spreading COVID that have caused the restaurant industry untold damage, and how government agencies like OSHA are being weaponized to punish critics of government failure. Andrew gives his first hand account of what it was like for an independent restaurant owner at the beginning of the pandemic. He describes how a small business like his struggled to keep up with constantly changing COVID restrictions and lockdowns. He also shares the under-reported story of how well intentioned stimulus money ended up increasing COVID unemployment since his workers could make more money by not returning to work. Andrew debunks the lies concerning the restaurant industry being a major source of COVID transmission. He details how these myths informed the disastrous COVID restrictions of political leaders like Gavin Newsom that have banned safe practices like outdoor dining. This ignoring of science has caused restaurant costs to skyrocket at the same time that they destroyed countless small businesses and restaurants. Andrew talks about how he has faced retribution from health inspectors, and OSHA since he went public with his criticisms of Gavin Newsom’s disastrous decision to ban outdoor dining. He shares how risky the restaurant industry is even during normal times. He details how the always-changing COVID restrictions are destroying the restaurant business. He also discusses the importance of corporate social responsibility and how he has raised and distributed over $400k in donations to help unemployed workers in the food business.
