• More pay for healthcare employees
    As many healthcare workers are putting their lives at risk due to the coronavirus and are not getting a single penny of appreciation. They are the most important people that we need during this pandemic. Employees in healthcare are the most at risk than any other job and deserve to be payed hazardous pay for their hard work and dedication. The moral thing to do would be to pay ALL healthcare employees more during this crisis.

  • Rapid Response Monitoring - Prioritize Health Over Work
    As a central station dispatcher we are the liaison between citizens and law enforcement, fire, and medical responders. We show up daily to do our part in case help is needed. By doing so we are not only putting our well being at risk but those in our homes as well. Additional income can help in assisting for childcare due to school closures, groceries, our family members or friends that are now unemployed, etc. Amazon warehouse workers who are paid an hourly wage will now receive double pay for working overtime over 40 overs per week and they also received a $2 increase in pay. Home Depot has also given employees additional 80 hours of paid time off which is designed to make sure sick workers stay home. Whole Foods employees received a $2 an hour increase. Stater Bros. employees working in stores, distribution, transportation, corporate offices and construction received a wage increase of $2 per hour. Target Corp. received a $2 an hour increase and also offered workers that are pregnant, 65 years or older, or who have underlying health risks, access to paid leave for up to 30 days. Starbucks is now paying their employees for the next 30 days, whether they come to work or stay home. Costco has also announced wage increases and better benefits recently as well as Walmart whose pay increased from $15-$19 an hour. Rapid Response claims they appreciate their employees, but do they really? Rapid Response Monitoring is stationed in Corona, CA and its main office in Syracuse, NY. There are now 1,468 positive cases and 27 deaths in California. New York state's death toll has reached 114, surpassing Washington state and accounting a third of all U.S. deaths. COVID-19 is REAL and extremely dangerous. Please help these employees and their families. You can also sign and share at https://www.change.org/rrms-prioritize-the-health-of-your-employees Thank you.

  • SHOULD GROCERS DENY SENIOR & HIGH-RISK EMPLOYEES TIME OFF TO SELF QUARANTINE?
    Forcibly exposing these high-risk groups of people to the public in mass at grocery stores will undoubtedly cause not only unnecessary and untold numbers of deaths among these groups, but also will serve to further overwhelm the healthcare systems, likely creating a snowball effect in the numbers of fatalities due to insufficient or unavailable medical treatment.

  • Worker right at Dillards
    This is important not only for the workers but I believe the company at large--it improves relationships with higher management and it looks great in the public eye.

  • Mental Health Therapists Fair Insurance Reimbursement
    The mental health and addiction parity act says that health insurance needs to pay the same rates that a medical provider get paid. Nurse Practitioner's have comparable training and education and they get paid 3 times as much with benefits. Especially during this pandemic, in order for the people to get their mental health needs met, we need to take care of these providers as well.

  • Burgerville workers need Covid-19 Protections NOW
    These are extraordinary times. All workers at Burgerville have faced either severe cuts to their hours or have been furloughed--with no warning and no financial assistance. The workers that remain have little to no choice but to work in conditions that expose them and their loved ones to a deadly virus. For those who are furloughed, the company is telling us not to worry because of government assistance, but rent is due and the money isn't in our wallets. Burgerville has an obligation to us now. This has and will lead us to further insecurity for our kids, our homes, our food, and our healthcare. Amazon, Whole Foods, New Seasons, Market of Choice, and other companies are already offering workers hazard pay to acknowledge the increased risk that grocery and service workers are facing right now. As one of the few businesses that is able to stay open during the pandemic, it is our responsibility to provide the community with the support it needs--through our food and our health. The less of us who are exposed to the virus, the healthier the community. The less of us who have to rely on public assistance because we have the support of our employer, the more resources for workers laid off from businesses that are no longer open. Now is the time to prioritize that people remain healthy, fed, and housed.

    We are in the middle of a pandemic that can be deadly to anyone regardless of age, race, gender. We’re all at risk and no job is worth your life.

  • International Shoppe T1 JFK should close because of COVID-19
    All of the flights have been cancelled yet we’re still expected to show up at work. What’s the point if there aren’t even any customers. These are luxury brands selling nonessential products, they are not needed right now. By staying open, we’re only increasing the chances of the virus spreading.

  • Child Care Workers Deserve Hazard Pay
    NYS has mandated the closure of all schools and non-essential businesses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Daycare centers have been asked to remain open to care for young children, with expectations to also be willing to accept additional students of first responders, offering waivers to go beyond our enrollment. This is in direct contrast to the recommendations of the CDC to maintain social distancing and limit group gatherings. Workers are expected to report to work and will not receive pay if they have not accrued paid time off. Daycare employees are expected to be on the front lines during this pandemic, risking their health, under no advice or supervision as to ensure proper safety and protection against this virus.

  • PCC Community Markets ("PCC") Store Employees
    Grocery store workers are working in one of the few places still open to large groups and are dealing with hoarding, fights, and shortages. Despite this, PCC store employees are coming to work, enabling our community to quarantine. While this petition cannot address the inequities of class that persist in this country, the virus reveals that risk once again is outsourced to low and moderate-income workers. At a minimum, PCC store employees should receive increased pay and expanded benefits during this crisis. Time is of the essence and other grocers have acted in an expeditious way to address these issues. We expect the same from our Union Representatives on our behalf and PCC Community Markets.

  • COVID-19: Amazon, Please Extend Paid Sick Coverage To All Your Fulfillment Workers
    Many Amazonians at the fulfillment centers have had to call out sick during the Coronavirus outbreak and urgently need Amazon to expand paid sick coverage. We are very grateful that we are allowed to take unlimited sick days this month, but only those of us in quarantine for the Covid-19 virus, and who test positive will be entitled to extra sick pay — which amounts to a mere handful of thousands of Amazonians company-wide. Currently, testing for the Coronavirus remains highly inaccessible to millions of people in the United States. Amazonians who are unable to get tested shouldn’t have to suffer financial duress for staying home, so as not to spread the virus to their coworkers and the public — not knowing if they’ve contracted Covid-19 or not. For Amazon workers who have tried to get tested, many of us have found it next to impossible, because testing at this time is largely only available at the ER, and for people who are showing acute symptoms. Mr. Bezos, please bring smiles to your Amazonians by expanding paid sick coverage to all your workers at the fulfillment centers. March has been a rough month for us and for all Americans, and there seems no end in sight. We'd be so very grateful for this act of goodwill from our CEO.

  • Women AND men can have ear piercings
    I don't see why women can have gauges or ear piercings and why if you have them before being hired you can still have them at certain locations. Why can't we all have the same options?
