Putting their lives at risk for us every day, essential workers are protecting our health, safety, and well-being during this pandemic, yet Trump and Congress have failed to protect and compensate them.
Now it's time WE support essential workers, no matter their immigration status.
On May 7th, millions of people and over 30 national organizations will take online action and demand Congress support an Essential Worker Bill of Rights. If we’re loud enough, we can help #ProtectEssentialWorkers by demanding:
--Workplace Health Protections
--Essential Worker Pay
--Paid Sick Leave + Family Leave
--Free Health Care
TAKE ACTION with us in solidarity with essential workers demanding protections & worker benefits. Join us!
