Arc of the Ozarks - DSP Hazard Pay

This petition has been created with the intent of providing our “Essential” Employee’s with the opportunity for Hazard Pay during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Why is this important?

“ Since The Arc of the Ozarks' beginning in 1964 the overall goal has been to bring about a significant change in attitude towards individuals with developmental disabilities. Operating as a nonprofit organization, we strive to hear the needs of individuals and families and explore ways to fund solutions that best meet those needs. We today serve the southwest Missouri community with a list of live, work, play and learn services including residential, employment, community integration, education and recreation, dual diagnosis services and autism services. ”

Arc staff assist the individuals in their day to day lives, with anything and everything they need. The rely on us and most cannot survive without their staffs help. We put ourselves at risk every day coming into work to ensure that they are taken care of, and it is important that staff are compensated appropriately. It is important that these employee’s are fairly compensated for the risk and exposure that they face coming to work, as well as the risk of getting their families sick.

If you support the motion that these employee’s should see fair and just compensation for their sacrifice please:
Sign up for the petition and share with any Arc employee that is dedicated to the cause. Thank you for your support
