Mark Williams started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

This petition proposes that in times of crisis, natural disasters, state of emergencies and nationwide pandemics that the wages of essential workers be increased but not be limited to the minimum of time and one-half to better enable those who are called according to the individual states essential staff requirements so that essential staff may be compensated for working in hazardous conditions and to help maintain state, federal and/or the U.S. economy.

I would also like to propose that when a state has declared a state of emergency, natural disaster, Nationwide pandemic and/or times of crisis that the state and/or United States government initiate Hazard pay immediately and that if the required hours of a regular work week exceeds 40 hours that all essential staff be paid but be not limited to double pay.

I would also like to include that if a state declares a state of emergency, natural disaster, time of Crisis or Nationwide pandemic, that essential staff Hazard pay be federal and state tax-free and paid in full. Essentially, this would boost morale beyond belief and create an economy so strong and rooted in the American Spirit that we will be a force like no other country has ever seen before.
