Lesia Smalls started this petition to Daniels Healthcare employees, take in, dump, cook & shred medical waste; some w/Covid-19 labeled. and

Having a job, considered to be "essential", everyday we go to work, we are exposed. But adding insult to us, our work requires us to take in, dump, cook & shred any & all medical waste....this includes ANYTHING, from medications, human body parts, animal body parts, urine, feces, blood, foul odors, etc., much of which is clearly labeled 'covid-19', today. We then are tasked w/cleaning, disinfecting & sanitizing the containers w/limited PPE. Additional pay IS deserved. Some fail to realize, there are more frontline workers, than the traditional doctors, nurses, cnas, firefighters & police! Some are "behind-the-scene" essential workers, that others never even think of. Please, let's be fair to ALL who are putting their lives at risk, not just some! Often Daniels Healthcare employees work without breaks, in extremely hot weather, cold weather, long hours, shortened hours, all with little to no prior notice, most times without, so much as a thank you. We're discouraged from filling unemployment, instead told we "must use a vacation day or not get paid". Employee turnover is higher, here, than at any other place I've worked, mostly due to poor management. Employees have no one they can talk to about the many issues that are occurring here. Daniels Healthcare's corporate office turns a deaf ear to & strongly discourages "whistle-blowing".
