Please consider raising our pay to Hazardous pay temporarily during Covid-19 epidemic
Please consider raising our pay to $15 hour or reasonable pay for CNAs during this epidemic. This will help our fears and anxieties every time we go to work and will help us concentrate better while taking care of our residents without being stressed out and having anxiety. We have families at home that we are risking every time we clock in and out at work. The media actually posted the website for employees to start petitions to help ease our minds. My 8 year old son asked "Mom won't you get the virus if your around alot of people?" And it really hurt my heart to think I could be exposed because mail, food, and supply trucks go to the nursing home weekly, and besides there are already 11 nursing homes in Louisiana already comprised with the caronavirus.
Why is this important?
It is important because we are going to work every day mandatory dealing with 100+ residents and have to risk bringing something back to our families, furthermore this is like playing Russian roulette because we are risking our lives every shift this is terrifying and we are stressed and experiencing anxiety and lack of sleep due to a fear of contracting the caronavirus. We should qualify for hazardous pay to continue to work during these terrifying conditions.
How it will be delivered
