Give Publix Employees Hazard Pay

Give Publix Employees Hazard Pay

Publix should pay all of their employees time and a half as hazard pay during the COVID-19 national emergency.

Why is this important?

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.


Reasons for signing

  • Deli workers need protection too, not just cashiers or customer service clerks... due to small space we are close to the counter and close to customers... what about us being 6 ft away? Is our health important too? Why not do all online orders for the deli department?
  • It’s been really crazy here at Publix. We truly deserve this hazard pay. Please pay respect to the people working at the grocery stores.
  • My husband puts himself and my family (parents, children, and myself) at risk every day to serve others in need during these difficult times, for the same hourly rate that they were getting paid before a highly contagious and fatal virus took over the world. Publix should temporarily give at least a 2.00/hr raise for those who come to work! These people are dedicated and work under hard times, they should be compensated for it!
