• Hazard Pay and Guaranteed Wages for Buddy Boy Brands Employees
    The world is experiencing a global pandemic. Countries around the globe are shutting their borders, enforcing curfews and imposing quarantines on their citizens in an attempt to quell the rise of this new virus. With estimates that 1 in 2 Americans will contract COVID-19 in the next year and the duration of enforced time off from work, Buddy Boy needs to adequately protect their employees that are putting themselves at risk for the company. All the responsibility now falls on us to adequately protect ourselves, which we cannot do if the company we work for will not provide for us. Hazard pay and guaranteed closure leave provide security, comfort and the increased morality of know our company has our backs during this global crisis.

  • Give Publix Employees Hazard Pay
    Publix associates come into contact with hundreds of customers every day, and in this pandemic are considered “essential workers.” Publix employs about 89,000 part-time workers who do not receive paid time off for sick leave. During this national emergency, Publix is making record profit. Publix should pay all employees time and a half to compensate for any health-related expenses that may come up during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    It is important because both Lyft and Uber drivers almost lost all of their daily income and they do not have any immediate solution to replace their income. Uber Eats and other delivery Apps are not enough to provide opportunities for thousands of drivers, who worked full time for Lyft, especially, are now with NO income.

  • 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.
