To: Congress for every Essential employee

Essential Workers should be getting $600 hazardous pay

Note: This petition was original started by Najaka Carter and is now being maintained by MoveOn's petition team.

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...
