Would lack of pay provide perspective of barber's plight?

Please place David Collins on 90 days furlough so he can see what it is like having his livelihood ripped from him by COVID-19. Regarding his May 21 column, “I’m sorry I voted for Stonington First Selectwoman Chesebrough,” on barbers going back to work. There does not appear to be any further safety measures that will materialize, leaving the governor's postponement to June 1 looking arbitrary and capricious. This country has a long tradition of civil disobedience, and David should get off his soapbox and realize that the barbers have a right to have their grievances heard without condemnation.
