  • GameStop Needs To Suspend All Business Until Further Notice
    Closing GameStop, during this pandemic of the coronavirus, is crucial. This is a respiratory virus, and the only way to stop the spread of the virus is to stay away from others. The CDC has continually emplored all people and businesses to close to contain and slow the spread of the virus. Although washing your hands frequently, limiting customers, and disinfecting the store is helpful, that will not prevent the spread of coronavirus. Both customers AND employees are at risk of catching and spreading the virus. At this point, there is no way to know who has the coronavirus, due to the limited number of tests. Suspending all business hours, until further notice, WHILE continuing to pay both hourly, and salary workers would be beneficial to both customers & partners. Employees and Customers can display no symptoms while still being able to transmit the virus to others. Employees have to go home to their families who may be immunocompromised, and by going to work, they are increasing the risk of themselves or their family catching the virus. Instead of waiting until an employee has been exposed or catches the virus, closing all stores would prevent anyone from getting the virus. At this current time, employees are on the frontlines, potentially being exposed and spreading the virus unknowingly. Positive relationships with the employer and feeling supported by the employer are the top markers of employee satisfaction. Employee satisfaction is the number one factor in business success. You must make the right choice. The moral thing to do would be to suspend business while paying partners until there is a grip on the virus.

  • Join other retailers and do more for your employees and more for social distancing
    Retail pharmacy employees may not be out on the emergency front lines risking health with every patient that enters, such as hospitals and other first responders but as a health care provider pharmacies will remain open and still putting themselves at risks. As everything else is closing around us people will flock to CVS to stock up on necessities, pick up their medications or even just as an excuse to leave the house. As a leading health care provider CVS should be setting the standard for what pharmacies should be doing and how they should be approaching the social distancing aspect while still providing excellent care to both it's customers and employees.

  • PetPeople needs hazard pay now!
    We are exposing ourselves (and our loved ones) to COVID-19. We aren’t being paid for the extra work we’re doing or the risk we’re undertaking. We are terrified. We need our company to have our back by introducing hazard pay at the rate of time and a half, plus guaranteeing forced closure pay. Workers who are typically scheduled a certain number of hours per week need to be guaranteed that if their store closes, they will continue receiving pay equal to their average scheduled wages. For example, someone scheduled full time would receive a biweekly check totalling how much they would earn for 70 hours of work — that is two weeks of 40-hours, minus ten 1-hour lunch breaks through those two weeks. Why is this important? According to the UN, hazard pay is “a form of compensation granted to staff members who have been requested to remain and report for work in duty stations where very hazardous conditions, such as war or active hostilities, prevailed and where the evacuation of families and nonessential staff had taken place.” We are in the middle of a global crisis. PetPeople — and any necessity supply stores at large — are ensuring our communities can safely and comfortably quarantine/self-isolate. But the workers stocking the shelves have not received any sort of security from PetPeople, that we can be compensated for the essential service we are providing. PetPeople is telling us to stay home if we have a fever. That is insufficient — it requires workers to work until they get sick before they can receive any compensation for putting their lives in danger, and it does nothing to answer concerns of part-time or new team members who don’t qualify for medical insurance should they become ill. Retail grocery/necessity stores and hospitals are on the frontlines right now, but retail workers don’t have access to the same precautions and resources as hospital workers. Hazard pay and guaranteed closure pay provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.

  • Suspend Costa business until further notice, due to the Coronavirus
    The Coronavirus pandemic has already forced many businesses to close for their customers safety and their staffs safety. Despite the government offering to pay 80% of people’s wages Costa Coffee has refused to close its sites. Staff members should not have to be exposed to potential life threatening illness when the government is so willing and able to help people avoid it.

  • Provide Shipt Shoppers with Hazard Pay and Expand COVID-19 Paid Leave
    Target-owned Shipt, a delivery service, is currently hiring thousands of new shoppers in cities across the United States to meet the rising demand for home delivery of essential goods during this crisis. Shipt workers shop for and deliver groceries, medications and household supplies from local retailers. During this global crisis, we shoppers are working on the frontlines and risking our safety. The current policy--providing 14 days of financial assistance to those who test positive for COVID-19--isn't enough. In many cases, access to tests is limited or unavailable. Shoppers may need to be--and some already are--under self-quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19 or due to a sick or at-risk family member. Shoppers need expanded paid leave to provide us with the crucial support needed to make the safest decisions for ourselves, for Shipt customers, and for the community at large. Many Shipt customers are high risk populations--elderly, immunocompromised, and those with underlying medical conditions. It is imperative that Shipt shoppers have the support that they need to make safe, informed decisions that keep everyone as safe as possible. Grocery store retailers--including Trader Joe's and H-E-B--have begun making movements in this direction, implementing hourly pay raises, expanding paid leave, and introducing new safety protocols. On March 20th, Target, Shipt's parent company, increased wages, provided bonuses to team leads, and extended paid leave for higher-risk Target employees. With more and more shelter-in-place orders being enacted around the country, our work is vital. Shipt workers must not be left behind. **To any Shipt shopper who wants to join in this effort, you're invited to The Shipt List, a facebook community for Shipt shoppers.
