  • Harvard, Pay All Your Workers
    In a letter to the Harvard community, President Bacow wrote, “I am proud to be a member of a community where people put the greater good above their own self-interest;” and he urged students, faculty, and staff to “temper increased distance with deeper care for one another.” In this time of crisis, Harvard should put the good of its employees ahead of the university’s narrow budgetary interests. Harvard should lead in demonstrating a spirit of care by ensuring that all workers at this university, whether directly hired or subcontracted, will be paid for the rest of the semester so that they can weather this pandemic.

  • Childcare Providers Take a Hit: COVID-19 Forces Childcare Providers to Close Doors
    As being a small business owner does come with it’s perks; right now it can be a hard time to be self-employed. Being self-employed also means no paid leave. Currently the social distancing guidelines of no more then 10 bodies in a group has possibly affected some in home daycares. Not only have providers struggled with social distancing; the high demand of sanitation products have left providers with nothing to keep surfaces safe. In result home childcare providers are forced to close doors due to the Coronavirus outbreak. These small business owners are left without work for an extended period of time. This causes families to fall behind on bills and a dramatic decline in household income to support their families. With the decline in income being a known factor, some childcare providers try to hold on and stay open as long as possible. Although this puts individuals at risk of COVID-19 spreading, some childcare providers can not afford the dramatic loss of income and are forced to stay open. For the few that do stay open, their income slowly declines due to parents being without work resulting in no money to pay to keep their child enrolled. So many issues have taken place within the past two weeks with COVID-19 that has really took a toll on small business owners/childcare providers.

  • Mandate Safe Social Distancing For Grocery Store Employees
    Grocery stores have been deemed an essential service yet their employees are not being protected from Covid-19. These workers are being forced to be exposed to potential infection over and over daily and are also forced to potentially carry disease home to their families. These workers are incredibly vulnerable and are not being protected by their employers or the government.

  • Get Staples to close & pay employees!
    It is unnecessary and unsafe to be open during a PANDEMIC. We are not an essential store and corporate is fighting and begging to stay open, claiming Staples is essential and putting employees and their families at risk. Staples should temporarily close stores and pay their employees for the time being. Many employees are at high risk ages, are immunocompromised, have asthma, etc. This is NOT RIGHT and extremely unsafe. In order to curb this virus and the spread of it, Staples needs to close their doors and pay their employees.

  • Canada Post Must Ensure Safety for Employees and Customers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
    Public health officials have made it clear that everyone should stay home and avoid contact with others as much as possible. By continuing to work as normal, postal employees are put at great risk of contracting the virus and/or spreading it to customers. If Canada Post fails to act swiftly and boldly, many employees and customers alike may become severely ill or die as a result. The gravity of this can hardly be overstated.

  • New Seasons Market Employees for COVID-19 Hazard Pay
    Employees are experiencing elevated anxiety and fear as they continue their regularly scheduled shifts at the eye of the pandemic storm, especially those who are considered at-risk. Hazard pay would go a long way in terms of increasing morale and knowing their employers recognize the hard work and health risks they face amid this global crisis. 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.”
