To: Congress for every Essential employee

Essential Workers should be getting $600 hazardous pay

Take initiative to compensate the ones still working and at risk with the same extra $600 that the unemployed are receiving. We should be paid from the time this epidemic began because when some were laid off, those who stayed working were at risk and risking the health of ourselves as well as our families.

Why is this important?

Because just as those who have been out of work are at risk and need help, so are the people who still have to go to work every day...

How it will be delivered

Emails, letters and phone calls


Reasons for signing

  • I believe if unemployed get an extra 600 a week.. We essential workers need should recieve it to.
  • I work security at a retirement home that allows family(1 visitor) to come see them. I’m still at risk to catch it and have kids. If a person who isn’t working but yet chooses to buy new phones, clothes, jewelry, etc. instead of bills and I have to work and risk catching this sickness then they should pay people who are working the hazard pay. Plain and simple. Risk your life get normal pay, stay home and spend money sitting in your couch get paid!??
  • Cause we risk our life everyday working in the healthcare
