The Takeaway
Lost Pay
Following last month’s winter storm in Texas, The Daily Beast reported that dozens of employers in the state gave workers the option of using vacation time for days they were unable to work due to the extreme weather, or going without pay entirely for those days. This despite the fact that for many work was impossible due to power outages during the storm. On the West Coast, many workers have also been put in a similarly precarious position during recent wildfires. So what protections do workers have during natural disasters? The Takeaway speaks with two guests about the situation in Texas and how it compares to what workers are experiencing in areas vulnerable to climate change nationwide.
