• 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.

  • 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.

  • Tropical Smoothie Cafe: Hazard Pay COVID-19
    Update : Most of our store are now doing curbside pick up even as the Virus is becoming more and more serious Experts now say the covid-19 is going airborne we have no masks and subway gloves which mean even more contact the employees have to make .Lives are at risk. Several customers come in every day not knowing if they’re sick due to the shortage of tests. Even though there is no dining in the store, there still are small crowds in small lines that form. During orders, some of them have already displayed signs of sickness. Hazard pay would be at the very least since we are not offered sick day leave.

  • 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.

  • Keep workers safe and pay them sick pay
    My son works for one and he said they dont get sick pay and he cant wear rubber gloves cause he has to keep removing them and hes a single dad with a toddler at home in his sole care. All these delivery companies need to do way more to protect their employees. Not only are they putting them and their families at home at risk but they are also putting their customers at risk. And Starbucks should definitely shut down!

  • 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.

  • Temporarily Close Dunkin’ Due to Coronavirus
    DUNKIN’ IS NOT AN ESSENTIAL BUSINESS. We, as well as our customers, most of whom are elderly, deserve to be protected from the Coronavirus. We are transmitting germs everyday by serving each customer that comes through the drive thru or comes in for takeout. This is not okay and Dunkin should shut down all locations ASAP.

  • 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.
