To everyone who has signed this petition- thank you. Staples introduced a "bonus pay" for a 6 week period (week of 4/19-5/24) of a whopping extra $1 per hour which excludes anyone who doesn't work five out of those 6 weeks. It also is not paid per week, but you get one check on June 12th. I think this is ridiculous considering many locations were not allowing employees to work again until recently. Also, $1? Really Staples? Is that what your employees are worth to you? Let me know what your opinions are on this, everyone!

Get Staples to close & pay employees!
Close down stores temporarily and pay employees for the time being.
Why is this important?
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.
