Salon À la Mode’s owner, Shelley Luther, got her first piece of good news yesterday when Texas Gov. Greg Abbott eliminated jail penalties for lockdown offenders.
After two days behind bars, Luther was free. The otherwise law-abiding citizen stoically confronted the indignity of imprisonment because her business needed to remain open to provide for her children and 19 employees.
Instead of cowering before the court so that she could freely leave — still having to pay a hefty fine — Luther told the judge, “I have hair stylists that are going hungry because they’d rather feed their kids. So sir, if you think the law is more important than kids being fed, then please go ahead with your decision. But I’m not going to shut the salon.”
Still facing imposing financial obstacles, Luther appeared on Sean Hannity’s program last night, who gave her more welcome news. (Daily Wire)
After describing the situation with the Democrat activist judge who ordered her to serve a week in jail and pay a $7,000 fine, Luther said that she opened her business because she was behind on her mortgage and her stylists were also struggling to make ends meet.
“I’m two months behind on my mortgage and my stylists were telling me that they wanted to, you know, what do you think if I do underground and go to people’s houses?” Luther said. “And I just said, you know, that’s not a good idea because we can’t control the environment there. We don’t know if it’s been disinfected or anything like that. And I just decided I would open to create a safe place for the stylists, and to make sure I wasn’t the reason they weren’t making money.” (RELATED: Dystopian Nightmare Comes to America)
“We tried to use the gloves at first and that’s kind of hard for the hair stylists,” Luther continued. “The nail techs of course did, but we made sure that I had no clients waiting inside the salon at all. So I had chairs six feet apart outside of the salon so we had no one waiting, and when a stylist was ready, wearing a mask of course, didn’t let any clients come in without a mask. They instantly sanitized their hands. The hair stylists sanitized their hands and they came in, they did the cut and that person left. And so there were no magazines and there were no drinks. And of course everybody had to wear a mask to come in.”
A few moments later, Hannity told Luther that he was going to be making a donation to her shop because he wanted her and her employees to be able to make it through the economic crisis.
