Brigit Leigh started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

This is a petition for the essential workers during the covid19 pandemic. We are going to work everyday, being exposed to droves of the community. Most of these people are making minimum wage to keep this economy going and supply the needs of the community. We are risking our health and the lives of ourselves & loved ones while the owners of these companies are making record profits. Most of these companies have not even put accurate safety measures in place to protect the workers let alone given any financial incentive to continue to be subjected to all of this just to make a living wage. If the government and business owners do not step up and do what is right then people will start a strike. Keep in mind, if that happens, noone will be filling in these positions. There is already a need for more workers in these grocery stores, pharmacies, Walmarts, ect., And noone receiving unemployment right now is going to give that up to go work at a place for minimum wage starting pay, not now. Let's start showing these people that essential jobs demand essential pay. Period.
