Many Careers are being forcefully stopped or taken away due to the California/UnitedStates shutdown from the Corona Virus. Salons especially are suffering during this time! We depend on our clients to make our income! Out of all jobs, we are one of the most sanitary. State board does random inspections on us all the time. We are expected to and have to abide by strict sanitation laws. For example, one small hair in our wash bowl is a fine. Any used gloves on our station, even if we are working on the same client, there is a fine. We have to have our “quatz” /disinfecting area where we sanitize our tools in between each client. We even use hospital grade disinfectant. There are many rules to follow to protect ourselves and our clients already. During this time, we could add on more laws. For example, wearing a mask and gloves at all times and even a face shield if necessary, wearing hospital clothing if necessary, taking temperatures before entry, having our clients put on hand sanitizer at the door and taking appointments only and no walk-ins. We are fully capable of following these strict sanitation guidelines based off what we already follow. We have fought to open our doors but sadly were denied. The governor has said it will be months, not weeks before we reopen. Us stylists, barbers, nail techs, massage techs, esthetician’s, etc. have to provide for our families and most of us are not getting the help we need from the government. Salon owners can’t pay their rent. Many stylists are risking bringing the virus into their home, making at-home appointments because they do not have any other choice and it’s their only source of income. The governor is literally putting our careers on pause and expect us to continue on with life as if we do not have families to feed and bills to pay. We all have paid thousands of dollars to go to school! Instead of the “Cares Act” which pauses our payments for our student loans, they need to give out student loan forgiveness! I also believe that after showing proof of rent, the government should provide that amount each month to our salon owners to pay their rent while they forcefully keep their doors closed. Sign this petition to fight for student loan forgiveness for all those careers affected by the United States shutdown!
