Pay Murphy USA Employees hazard pay
Murphy USA must provide employees with hazard pay. Employees are constantly exposed to Covid-19, and are not receiving additional pay to work in such conditions
Why is this important?
The definition of hazard pay by the UN is:
"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."
Murphy USA is currently open to the public during this time to provide customers with a much needed service of providing gas, groceries and many other items. Many Murphy USA employees 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 contact with customers during their shifts. Thus Murphy USA should be providing employees with hazard pay to compensate them for their extra work and exposure to COVID-19
