Brian Crandall started this petition to Congress

Congress is considering an 4th stimulus package. In that package is a proposal to pay bonuses to Healthcare Providers, who are working on the frontline to fight COVID 19. There is no denying that extra money would be a blessing, but what these Healthcare workers really need is extra time off to be with their families, many of whom cannot see their family because they are working multiple shifts and multiple hours.

My proposal would be for Congress to authorize 4 additional weeks paid vacation for Healthcare Providers backed and paid for by the Federal Government. Time off can be taken during the first 18 months after the COVID 19 threat has subsided. The 18 month grace period allows employers to stagger time off, so the already strained Healthcare industry doesn't strain further while employees take a much needed rest.

What better way to say thank you, than to give these hard working individuals extra time to be with their family, after an extended time of not seeing their family. The United States will get through this crisis, thanks mainly to those Healthcare workers, who are making the biggest sacrifice.
