Give Marketplace Workers at Duke Their Hazard Pay After Removing Them for Two Weeks

Duke Students For Change started this petition to Duke University and

After being kicked out of their jobs for two weeks due to a COVID-19 outbreak, our marketplace workers were not paid or compensated in any way for their leave. Rather, they were forced to use their already scarce vacation days. One nice lady's son was recently murdered and had to use a vacation day to go to the trial, only to be at work the next day because she couldn't take another vacation day. 

This is not our Duke. We value our staff and workers.

To the Duke administration – what message does this send to your admitted students who are choosing between Duke and other top universities? You have the ability to fix this now before your top prospective students hear about it and choose the other school.

We ask that you do the right thing:

1) Two weeks' worth of pay to all marketplace workers

2) Two weeks' worth of refunded vacation days to all marketplace workers

3) An official apology to all marketplace workers
