• Publix: Coronavirus Pandemic
    Publix is SPECIFICALLY not allowing employees to wear masks and gloves to do their jobs in the Deli, Meat and Produce departments who come into close contact with co-workers and customers whom may be carrying coronavirus, they do not have the luxury of social distancing of 6 ft at all times as requested by OUR PRESIDENT. Publix does not allow these employees to wear gloves or masks because it hurts the "Publix image". They changed their policy ONLY after they were scrutinized and a petition was written against them in regards to this same policy, But the policy was clearly only written to save face in the eyes of the public, because this policy only allows select employees to wear masks and the actual VERBIAGE SPECIFICALLY prohibits FOOD PREP WORKERS FROM WEARING MASKS. "The voluntary option to wear masks/surgical masks or dust masks are allowed. Associates in the food prep areas are not allowed to wear masks" These are the people that should definitely be wearing masks and gloves...

  • Close Big Apple at 2 Park Ave Portland Maine
    This store is highly populated!! This store gets a bunch of customers In and out all day and at least half of our customers are homeless witch means they don't always have a way to shower and what not making hygiene sometimes hard. With that being said having this store open puts many at risk of getting the covid-19

  • Bartlett Tree Experts: Hourly pay workers need hazard pay now!
    As production arborists and tree care workers, we understand the importance of maintaining safe and healthy landscapes for residents and municipalities. We want to continue the important work that we do to maintain our high standards of care–but most importantly, we want the human health risks we now take in doing so to be acknowledged and valued. We are told that we have choices-We also need pay and security. We are currently not in positions to meet this essential need if we choose to stay home in order to protect our health and well being. Give us the choice to be compensated for hazardous work or to protect ourselves at home and still make ends meet! Como arborists de Bartlett, nosotros entendemos la importancia de mantener la salud y la seguridad de las propiedades. Queremos continuar el importante trabajo que nosotros matenemos- pero mas importante, nosotros queremos ser reconcido por los riesgos de salud que tomamos por a ver trabajado. Dicen a nostoros que tenemos opciones. Pero tambien el pago y la seguridad es un necescidad de vida. Ahora, no tenemos ese pago y seguridad si decidimos quedar en la casa. Denos la opcion tener una compensacion por "hazard work", o la opcion protegernos en casa con pago y seguridad.

  • Protect retail & grocery store workers during coronavirus pandemic
    Lots of grateful customers thank us for supporting them. But America’s biggest employers aren’t treating us like heroes, they are treating us like we are their bottomline. Walmart employs many people who are facing the pandemic without paid time off or health insurance. They penalize us when we’re sick and don’t accept doctors’ notes as excused absences. Amazon is hiring hundreds of thousands of employees to meet increasing demand – but most of these jobs are part-time without health care. Even worse, the government’s response so far has specifically excluded most retail and grocery employees – any company with more than 500 employees isn’t required to provide the emergency federal paid sick leave. Working in retail and grocery stores is a lot more dangerous than it was last month. Corporations need to recognize the worth of our work. Thank you for supporting us.

    This is important because the building is smaller than small bathrooms. And having 10 employees elbow to elbow is breaking the law right now with the Coronavirus pandemic.

  • Dairy Queen
    I want for the owners, HR, or any top Fourteen Foods affiliate to recognize their employees! They "claim" to be all about family but I haven't seen 1 ounce of kindness or tenderness to us. I haven't seen them reach out and offer hazard pay or offer anything to protect us and our families. They should be ashamed of themselves. Any company still open needs to recognize their employees and show them what they are worth. Because at the end of the day we are risking our life our children lives our loved ones life to make them richer!! I demand less hours!!! I demand a difference in pay!! I demand an offer to stay home!! I demand to be respected!! Cornavirus is very serious. These top fortune 500 companies are treating us like our lives are nothing more then disposable. IT'S SICKENING.

  • Hazard Pay for Welders and all Skilled Trade job workers.
    Every skilled trade worker has no choice but to come to work. While at work you are putting your health and your family health at risk because you're working around a lot of people. You don't know who's sick. Working in these fields you're putting your health your family health and the general public health at risk. Most jobs like these don't or can't practice social distance or anything else that could help prevent you from getting sick.

  • Lowe's employees - #STAYHOME
    We are obligated to work, unless we have Covid-19, however, we are being exposed daily by thousands customers visiting our store for non-essential items. Social distancing is a joke, we don't even have anything to disinfect with. Why should we get exposed for inconsiderated people who find themselves bored at home and want to finish there home projects and buy non-essential things like fencing, flooring, lighting fixtures, etc. We have been out of stock on most essential items for a while now, or get small amounts here and there. Lowe's only sees the profits $$$ in this pandemic & not the danger we walk into every day. We have children and families too and trust me, there's nothing essential about Lowe's that is worth risking our lifes and our families for. Lowe's a multi-million dollar company and will be fine with all the money coming from the government in this crisis.

  • Jersey Mike's Subs is NOT an essential business
    The number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 continues to rise throughout the United States. At this current moment of writing, there over 100 thousand confirmed cases in the United States (World Health Organization, March 29th) and approximately 1700 open stores (Jersey Mike's "Locations By State"). If the average store has about 7-10 workers, that is roughly 11-17 thousand employees exposed to hundreds of customers every day. My argument is that by removing Jersey Mike's Subs out of the equation during this global pandemic, we can effectively reduce the potential of infection and diseases for not only our customers but employees as well. As someone who currently works at a Jersey Mike's store - at one particular location that is not even sufficiently designed to sustain the 6ft. social-distancing law - the responsibility of maintaining order without enough resources is starting to become unbearable. I've personally seen customers that will come in with clear indications/symptoms and cough and touch various objects, whether intentionally or not. We do our best to enforce the rules, but I can't (and shouldn't) force someone out of the store. Everyone gives the same reasoning that "it isn't a big deal". So instead, we then have to wait for them to leave on their own accord, stop the entire flow of work in order to disinfect and sanitize with the proper procedures. However, since we have 6 different apps/methods to order, deals which cause individuals to purchase an exorbitant amount of food, and various people walking in at any given moment, we do NOT have the time. So, you may think we should put more employees on during the shift, but that just increases the exact same problem we are trying to avoid. We can't keep up this level of performance without severe implications for our coworker's personal health, and we don't even have the option for various government aid because we are still technically employed. The hours have been cut, yet we are still expected to perform twice the amount of tasks. You claim that we are "Essential", but every day you keep pushing this agenda, you are putting your "Essential" workers on the front line for no personal gain but your own. I enjoy my job immensely, but we all know that we are not "Essential". Jersey Mike's Subs is not "Essential".
