Ashley Monae started this petition to Essential Workers and

We the essential employees; such as those who work in the Health Care/ Public Health, Law Enforcement, Public Safety and First Responders field should be eligible for the HAZARDOUS PAY TOO.

We provide Essential Services that are vital to the health and welfare of the population and therefore are essential to maintain even in a disaster.

Yes we took this job and it was our choice to protect, serve, heal and assist our communities that we live in. Because we are SELFLESS INDIVIDUALS WHO CARE FOR OTHERS AROUND US. That doesn’t mean we want to be stripped away from our families and subjected to work in a pandemic that can’t be controlled. The risks are a 1000 times higher now. PPE is at an all time low, these are items required to do our job along with keeping our communities, our families and ourselves safe. What about the extra duties required of us during this time? We already go above and beyond everyday and now we have to continue to work tirelessly while supporting families and caring/protecting your loved ones all while putting our selves at risk everyday because anything can happen.

Why should it be the Employers decision to pay us hazardous pay? The government should include us in the hazardous pay especially during this pandemic. We are working tirelessly for our local, state, and federal  communities and governments. Some of us can’t even go home to our families due to quarantines. We the ESSENTIAL WORKERS are well deserving of the hazardous pay.
