Michaela McIlveen started this petition to Governor Janet Mills

As a hairstylist who works in Portland I am appalled that we are phase 1 of reopening the state. We all have the right to be safely put on unemployment! Not out there risking our lives for the sake of VANITY!!!! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!! If nail salons, massage therapists, gyms, etc. are not safe to open WHY ARE WE????? We are literally touching people and standing over them. HOW IS THIS SAFE??? It's no coincidence that the SAME DAY is self-employed stylists can apply for unemployment is the same day the government tell us to go back to work! So now we are forced to go to back to work whether we have the right safety gear or not or if we feel comfortable doing so. Because now we dont qualify for unemployment . Because now we can technically go back to work! ALL SO EVERYONE CAN LOOK PRETTY WHILE THEY THEY ARE STUCK AT HOME??? WHY?????!!!!!! As a stylist for 20 years I 100% UNDERSTAND how hair is important to people. It's a big part of why I do what I do! When you can change the way someone feels about themselves it's a great thing. HOWEVER.....the health and well being of myself and my clients is MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT  NOW!!!! WE SHOULD NOT BE PART OF PHASE 1! This is not safe! Please join me in supporting my fellow stylists and keep us safe!!!
