Brigid Turner started this petition to State/City In-School & After-School programs

Due to the Corona Virus, schools were mandated to close. This left full-time and part-time teaching artists without a job. This also left the students without the opportunity to complete the projects they started.

They were told that unless they had sick days to use for paid time off, they would not receive a pay. They were advised to file unemployment. Since the closing of the schools, the unemployment lines have been unreachable. 

Part-time artists are not able to work from home because they were employed to work with the children directly. Part-time artists should have the same payment policies as a full-time worker.

These teaching artists were given a contract which they were obligated to fulfill. Therefore, they should not be penalized during this time, but given what was owed to them.

Please support part-time artists to be able to get paid their part-time pay rate, per their contract during this time. 

Thank you!
