Should the U.S. bail out the cruise ship industry? | The Tylt
President Trump has said it may be necessary to bail out cruise ships due to declining revenue over the coronavirus outbreak. Several cruise ships were the vectors of early outbreaks of COVID-19—since the high profile quarantine and evacuation of the cruise ships, the industry has taken a huge hit. Trump has suggested the cruise ship industry would be among the recipients of stimulus and bailout money designed to keep the economy afloat amidst efforts to mitigate and contain the outbreak. However, critics say the cruise ship industry is exploitative and has intentionally avoided American taxes and regulations. It actually employs a global workforce—they're not America's problem.
