Protect SC Employees (It could’ve saved this woman’s life)

36 yr old Alicia Mitchell was walking from work at 8:21am on a usually busy road because she was told she'd be fired (confirmed via a cousin) if she didn't come in. This was apparently the Walmart MarketPlace on Ladson Rd in Ladson, SC. A 17 yr old unlicensed driver was going too fast on icy roads, lost control, slid off the road, that causing him to hit and kill Alicia. SC Governor and countless others urged people to stay home and off the roads. SC currently has no laws protecting an employees rights due to it being a right to work state and employers can let you go at any given moment for no reason at all. I believe SC needs to adopt laws protecting its citizens to avoid situations like this. Many other states have laws protecting its employees and I think it is time for SC to adopt similar laws. This lady’s death could’ve been avoided had SC citizens had laws protecting them from repercussions for simply calling out due to unsafe conditions that State Officials advised people to not travel in. She feared for her job, so she went to work, and in turn lost her life.... My hope is that officials introduce a law named Alicia’s Law or adopt similar laws as other states.
