• 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.

  • Burgerville workers need Covid-19 Protections NOW
    These are extraordinary times. Many workers at Burgerville and across the country have little to no choice but to work in conditions that expose them and their loved ones to a deadly virus. Many other workers at Burgerville and across the country have faced severe cuts to their pay or outright layoffs--with no warning, no guarantee of being rehired, and extremely limited financial assistance. For those who are laid off, we are being told not to work but unemployment benefits only get us a fraction of our already insufficient income. This has and will lead to us with 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.

  • 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?

  • DEMANDS FROM WORKERS AT MADISON METRO TRANSIT
    The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the City and our lives into a full-blown crisis. The City of Madison has recommended work from home for its professional employees but is maintaining essential services. This is a hazard situation. People need essential services like transit, groceries, and medical care. The workers providing these services are having our health and our families’ health at risk every time we walk through the door. We keep this city running by moving people, driving doctors, nurses and patients, grocery store clerks and shoppers. We are on the frontline and we are being asked to hold this city together. Without us, many will not get what they need to survive. We’re being asked to be on the frontlines but we’re not being treated like the emergency workers we’re told we are. Morale is not good.

  • Demand Spec's Give Employees PTO or Switch to Curbside Pick-up Only
    Spec's corporate num: (888) 526-8787 E-mail: contactus@specsonline.com Closing Spec's or at the minimum switching to curb-side pick up during this pandemic of the coronavirus is crucial. This is a respiratory virus, and the only way to stop the spread of the virus is to stay away from others. The CDC has advised all non-essential businesses to close to contain and slow the spread of the virus. Spec's is NOT an essential business and demanding employees stay at work during this time is negligent and detrimental to workers, customers, managers, and the public. Some Spec's branches have even disregarded directives from the management of the shopping centers they are located in to decrease hours, keeping regular store hours (Mon. - Sat. 10am - 9pm) and not limiting customer interactions whatsoever. Managers refuse to close during a time of increased profit, when customers who have the benefit of working from home are stocking up on non-essential items like fine wines and cheeses at the expense of Spec's employees and the general public. Although washing your hands frequently, limiting customers (which Spec's is not doing), and disinfecting the store is helpful, that will NOT prevent the spread of coronavirus. At this point, there is no way to know who has the coronavirus, due to the limited number of tests. Suspending all business hours, until further notice, while continuing to pay both hourly, and salary workers is absolutely necessary. At minimum, allow employees who consent to stay on to work pick-up orders only, limiting interaction to putting together phone orders and ID/age checks when customers pick up. Employees and customers may display no symptoms while still being able to transmit the virus to others. Employees have to go home to their families who may be immunocompromised, have asthma, diabetes, or other conditions that make them more severely impacted by illness. By going to work, they are increasing the risk of themselves, their family, and customers of catching the virus. Instead of waiting until an employee shows symptoms of the virus, closing all stores would prevent its' further spread. In the meantime, other measures should be taken to disinfect employee work spaces and limit customer interaction to a minimum.

  • Cascadia Behavioral Health Workers deserve hazard 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.” Cascadia proudly employees elderly and disabled workers, two demographics that are most at risk for becoming critically ill from COVID-19. Yet those workers can’t afford to avoid work and keep themselves safe. Many Cascadia Behavioral Health workers are worried and scared that during these hard times of a pandemic that they or their families will likely contract COVID-19 due to being in direct care with our patients during their shifts without proper PPE to otherwise protect them. Thus Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare providing their employees with hazard pay to compensate them for their extra work and exposure to COVID-19. Hazard pay provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.
