U. Michigan Orders Quarantine for Students Returning to Campus, Even if it Means Quitting a Job

U. Michigan Orders Quarantine for Students Returning to Campus, Even if it Means Quitting a Job

“Do not go to work, school or social gatherings.”

Wouldn’t most students be better off keeping their jobs and taking this year off from school?

The College Fix reports:

University of Michigan bans students from campus unless they quit their jobs

Previous generations worked a job so they could pay for college. Today’s generation may not be allowed to work if they want to matriculate.

The University of Michigan ordered students to quit their jobs two weeks before they return to campus in a “fall planning update,” highlighted by Michigan Capitol Confidential, that is “designed to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on campus”:

All U-M students who do decide to return to campus must observe a 14-day period of enhanced social distance at home before arriving in Ann Arbor or on campus. It is an important part of our strategy to minimize risk and keep COVID-19 out of our community. …

[Requirements include s]taying home and avoiding contact with others outside of your home. Do not go to work, school or social gatherings.

The taxpayer-funded institution, which must honor freedom of assembly under its constitutional obligations, also orders students to stay six feet away from others, avoid “public transportation, taxis or ride-shares” and take their temperatures twice a day.

Because it wouldn’t be college without mandatory training, UMich also ordered students to “complete an online learning module that serves as an overview of COVID-19.”

Will UMich staff and administrators also be observing a two-week quarantine before the beginning of the semester?

I doubt it.

To answer your question: would it not also be better for employers to offer apprenticeship programs, and “grow” employees into what they need and want? That way, they have workers who fit the needs of the company without being weighed down with social justice and “diversity” claptrap.

The employee is better suited to the tasks to be performed, and far less likely to run to HR about perceived “racism”, or “hostile work environment”.
