The title of the KOMO story is “State has Fined 11 Businesses over Covid-19 Mask Mandate.
In my opinion, this is pure, unadulterated EVIL. Here is a quote from the article:
The state Department of Labor & Industries said Wednesday in a news release that Mail Express Business Center in Enumclaw got the largest fine at $7,500 four four violations.
Investigators determined customers and employees there were not wearing masks, the report says and no signs were posted about the mandate.
According to L&I, the owner told investigators she did not enforce masking because, “she did not want to be an unpaid agent of the government.”
Emphasis above is mine. That business owner deserves a medal, and someone should start a defense fund for her, to pay that fine.
