‘Stupid and senseless’ | Should outdoor workers be forced to stop operating during lockdown?

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “‘Stupid and senseless’ | Should outdoor workers be forced to stop operating during lockdown?” – below is their description.

Victorian businesses remain in limbo, with uncertainty around how long the State’s lockdown might last. The restrictions on who is allowed to keep working have prompted one businessman to accuse the Victorian Government of “continued mismanagement”. Jim Penman – the founder of Jim’s Group – has written an angry letter to the Premier, asking why individual contractors working outdoors have been forced to stop operating.

He says there’s no evidence they pose a risk of spreading the virus.
