The People of ERMCO started this petition to ERMCO

As you know by now we are experiencing a pandemic that is supposed to kill 100,000-250,000 people if everything is done perfectly. Having stated that, around 4,000 people have died thus far, so we have a lot more casualties to come. Since we, the workers of ERMCO, have been deemed essential, it's only fair that we are compensated as such. We run the risk of not only infecting ourselves, but also our loved ones. If we are to risk our lives and our families lives to come to a job during a quarantine, then we should receive hazard pay. I feel that it is only fair for the people of ERMCO to be paid double time during this epidemic as a starter, or have a $2 permanent raise instituted immediately. Being that this is not a hostage negotiation, we would be more than happy to hash this out with the powers that be, in order to come up with a suitable outcome.
