We the employees of the Beckley ResCare facility have noticed that during the pandemic a lot of places are receiving hazard pay and better PPE during this Pandemic. We as Direct Care Staff are on the front every day for the ResCare facility. We're constantly put in situations where we maybe exposed to COVID19. Our company provides services to people who have Intellectual Disabilities and Behavior issues. We're being made to take clients to the hospital where there's COVID testing and we're not being provided proper PPE. We have to get gas to take consumers to the doctor, hospital and even community outings. While our state is on a stay at home order we're still required to take the clients out or they will have a behavior and behavior support professionals will not respond. This puts staff and consumers at risk. A a lot of staff who work for ResCare already has underlying health conditions such as COPD, Asthma, diabetes,MA, Fibromialgia, which puts them at a even greater risk going to and from work. We deserve a better pay because we're front line we're leaving our families and going to work 8,12, 16 and 18 hours a day sometimes even longer. We risk taking home the virus to our families. Meanwhile office personnel is working from home. A lot of the homes are low on cleaning supplies, hand sanatizer, and soaps for cleaning and during a time like this things like that are essential with 2-6 people in and out of the homes during a 24 hour period. Nursing and AMAP's  are going in and out of the homes passing the meds causing a greater risk of infection to those working in the home and the clients in the home. As employees who care about the people we serve, our families and most of all each other we're petitioning Rescare/Bright Spring Services to give us better PPE, Better Pay, and the supplies needed to disinfect and clean the areas we work in. We're not asking for a lot as other companies have already started implementing a lot of these. However, we most definitely should be included because we're essential to the consumers,  company and business. Please see that we've band together and that we want you to help us in keeping our clients, co-workers and families safe and secure.
