if a customer is choking or having an allergic reaction, a barrier should not stand in the way of safety.

I didn't know that a business has an obligation to train their staff to render aid in the event of an emergency. I look forward to watching Philly dig its own grave in the next few years from their stupidity.

Notice how they imply that this is for security reasons, and not because of the crime. Philly constantly baits and switches its laws for convenience. The soda tax was originally a tax on soda for health reasons, until they decided to send it to the general fund. They then removed the provision for the health funding, but kept touting it as a health oriented bill. Why anyone would believe philly politicians is beyond me

It’d still technically be health-oriented.

Because the employee would clearly have to vault the counter rather than go through the security door like a sane person.

Also what's to stop some dumb ape from pretending to have an attack, and then ambush the owner?

I was thinking the same thing, They got the city health department to say the barriers were a safety risk, but store employees don't typically render first aid. The guy makes it sound like the cashier would drag the sick person behind the counter to help them. How ridiculous.
