Force Trump to Protect Meat Plant Workers
This campaign has ended.
President Trump has signed an Executive Order requiring all Meat Packing Plants to be open despite the fact that these plants now have thousands of COVID-19 infected workers, some of whom have died. He MUST sign an Executive Order MANDATING ALL PLANTS COMPLY with newly developed plans (from OSHA, CDC) to ensure all workers are better protected from this dangerous and highly communicable virus.
Why is this important?
Right now, these companies are using the keep open order as protection from any liability for what happens to workers. This is egregiously unfair and is a barely disguised form of what's called "forced labor." Workers should not have to choose between poverty and getting sick and possibly dying. These plans change all of that. Shame on Trump and Shame on these companies for not doing this!
