Sanquandrea Albert started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

Hi...I am a essential worker.Specifically a health care worker.Everyday me and other essential workers all around the world risk the exposure to COVID-19 and most essential workers are only getting paid between $7.25-$12 dollars an hour. Some companies haven’t  even given essential workers a bonus or a raise and most essential workers are barely making enough to provide for our families. Furthermore, if an essential worker encounters COVID19 some employers will not give the essential worker paid leave, are only given a certain amount of paid leave, no where near 14 days worth, or they give a loan that has to be paid back once the essential worker returns to work. If  essential workers put their lives on the line I feel like an essential worker should at least be paid until they recover or at least have money left over so that an essential worker could use as a cushion. We shouldn’t have to worry about catching COVID-19 and not being able to pay our bills. There should be an ease of mind pay considering the fact that EVERY essential worker risks exposure to keep the world fed, healthy and functional. Some people may say it’s a choice to be an essential worker, but if you don’t work how can you provide for yourself or for your family?I think all essential workers should at least be paid $20hr or at least be given $500- $1,000 bonus or more and I know I’m not alone, so sign and share and let’s get what we deserve.
