• Demand gig economy companies give paid sick time off during coronavirus
    Everyday, I have 20-30 people come into my car - with all their germs. While other workers who are exposed at work have things like paid time off and healthcare, I have no protection. Under recently passed legislation in California, gig companies are supposed to guarantee gig workers access to paid sick days, but the companies have refused to do so. Gig companies, like Uber, Lyft and DoorDash, irresponsibly deny their drivers basic protections like paid sick time off. Anyone can get sick from coronavirus, but because drivers like me don’t have paid sick time, I can’t go to the doctor or take time off without losing precious income. If I don’t work, I can’t afford my rent. My choices are either to continue working while sick, just so I can survive to the next week, or not work and fall behind on bills and rent. Drivers are always forced to choose between these two impossible options because Uber and Lyft shrug responsibility for ensuring everyone's safety. Even in the face of a global pandemic where the best protection we all have collectively is limiting exposure and ensuring access to the medical care we deserve, Uber and Lyft are doing what they have always done: creating unsafe and unfair conditions and leaving drivers with the responsibility and expense to deal with the repercussions. As a driver, my whole job is to keep people safe — to get my passengers from point A to point B safely. Right now, I am doing everything in my power to take safety precautions, like wiping down my car regularly, but it's not enough. All workers need and deserve paid time off and healthcare all of the time, but this pandemic shows that we need it especially right now, when our communities are at risk of infection. If these companies are not held accountable to take action immediately, they are putting drivers and all the riders we transport at risk. It’s a potential public health crisis, and companies like Uber and Lyft have a real and urgent responsibility to protect the health of society at large. - Yash A. Driver and leader with Gig Workers Rising

  • COVID-19
    This issue of not informing Lyft drivers is vital because we are the ones at the so called front lines. We pick up passengers at the international airports that bring people from all over the world. We then go home to our families, and if our company that we work for does not take the initiative to put out vital precautions. We are left to fend for our selves to figure out how to protect our selves and still make a living.

  • A Real Choice continued
    RRMS needs to be transparent about the heightened risks of an in office work model during a pandemic and offer employees an opportunity to decline these working conditions. I am sincerely trying to offer suggestions on how this company can be resilient.

  • Instacart Hazard Pay and Guaranteed Closure Pay
    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. Instacart — and grocery stores at large — are ensuring our communities can safely and comfortably quarantine/self-isolate. The workers shopping in the stores have not received fair compensation for the essential service we are providing. Instacart has offered to reimburse sick time for any worker who becomes ill for up to two weeks. That is insufficient — it requires workers to work until they get sick before they can receive any compensation for putting their health in danger, and it does nothing to answer concerns of the underinsured should they become ill. Grocery stores and hospitals are on the frontlines right now, but grocery store 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 supports us.

  • SUSPEND non essential work, offer paid TIME OFF to enforce lockdown to tackle Coronovairus
    Suspending non-essential work and offering paid time off, during this pandemic of the coronavirus is crucial. The virus itself is airborne, and although washing your hands frequently, and disinfecting is helpful, that won’t prevent the spread of said virus. Both customers AND technicians are at risk of catching and spreading the virus. At this point in time, there is no way to know who has the coronavirus, due to the limited number of tests. Suspending all non-essential work, until further notice, WHILE continuing to pay both hourly, and salary workers, would be beneficial to both customers & workers. By now, almost all of our service areas are exposed to group of people who are already diagnosed, quarantined or in self isolation due to fast spreading Virus. This leaves most Techs exposed. While Frontier have put new policies into play, that doesn’t mitigate the entire risk of catching the virus. Technicians and Customers can display no symptoms, while still being able to transmit the virus to others. Instead of waiting until a technician has been exposed or catch the virus, suspending non-essential work and offering paid time off would prevent anyone from getting the virus. At this current time, Technicians are on the frontlines, potentially being exposed and spreading the virus, unknowingly. The moral thing to do, would be to suspend non-essential work, while paying partners, until there is a grip on the virus.

  • CORT: Reinstate Terminated Workers/ Provide COVID-19 Protections Now
    CORT has not provided our New Jersey warehouse with adequate protections from the spread of COVID-19. We did not receive gloves or eye protection until March 20, 2020, and closing business on Wednesdays will not reduce transmission among employees. Contracted trucks are not reducing our risk of exposure as the furniture they are unloading may carry coronavirus. Many of our requests are practices recommended by the CDC. We trust that you will do the right thing to protect the health of CORT employees, our families, and our customers.

  • Close Wendys and all fast food chains and pay its employees
    The United states is in the middle of a pandemic where most businesses have closed due to corona virus spreading. Yet wendys remains open and ia forcing its employees to work out od a drive thru window does not even follow the safety guidelines of 6 ft. Were not given masks or hand sanitizer and were told to ration are gloves. Were forced to wear headset that are right on our faces that are not being disinfected between uses. Why is it our lives our not important. Since when is a double cheeseburger an essential thing for people to survive. We have kids and families that we are endangering everyday. Most people who work in fast food our senior citizens, people with disabilities and people with kids. Why are our lives not important. Let us go home or give us safe work environments and the proper items to safely do our jobs during the corona pandemic.
