As a nation in crisis over COVID-19 many at risk workers are being told to self isolate to protect themselves from this virus. Sadly the government still have yet to change the statutory sick pay from a measly £94.25 which will cause many at risk workers to continue working in order to make ends meet. 

This petition is for the government to change the rate to a normal employees wages rate to allow those who need to self isolate for the recommended period without causing a major hardship to these people and their families. People with long term illnesses who are told to isolate for 12 weeks or longer cannot live on £94.25 per week. No worker wants to be ill and cause problems for others around them and that is why this needs to change asap

As of yet there is no relief for council tenants or the vulnerable members of our society, please do sign the petition and share it so we can ALL survive this pandemic the best way possible. 

**Please remember that a worker who has COVID-19 and attends work because they cannot afford to stay at home can infect many people which as we are aware is a killer!**

Can you really afford to take that chance?? Protect yourself and your families by signing and sharing this petition today!

Thank you for your support,
