[Ed. – Next they’ll be handing out the death penalty for violating lockdown orders.]
Oregon Occupational Safety and Health issued a $14,000 fine to Lindsey Graham, owner of Glamor Salon in Salem, for reopening her salon May 5 in defiance of Gov. Kate Brown’s stay-home order.
Graham said Friday the salon opened May 5 so that she and the other 23 hairdressers who work in her salon could earn a living for their families.
She also claimed that Child Protective Services had visited her house and questioned her child. “I’ve never expected such a violent, aggressive, vindictive thing could ever be done to me or my family,” she said, “because I’m trying to earn a living, because I’m trying to work.”
Department of Human Services spokesman Jake Sutherland said the agency is unable to comment on whether the visit occurred, due to confidentiality laws.
