Covid Nurse started this petition to Governor Jim Justice

We are Nurses, CNA’s, EMT’s, Phlebotomists, MA’s, Respiratory Therapist, PT’s, OT’s & more. We are your “frontline” healthcare workers. And while we’re risking our lives taking care of COVID patients, we have not received any HAZARD pay! We can’t be around our families, our friends, our loved ones. Isolation is depressing and the hard work we do is rewarding but exhausting. Why have we not received anything? Why do you think this is ok? If it weren’t for us being face to face, comforting these sick and dying COVID patients, where would they be? Who would take care of them? Isn’t it only right that we are fairly compensated for our risk, the dangers we encounter every day we work? The worry we feel from daily exposure. The discomfort from having a swab stuck up our nose often? It’s only right that you give us what we deserve! We’re at risk of contracting COVID, we’re at risk of dying. Some of us are staying at hotels to prevent taking something home to our families. Where is our HAZARD pay? This has been going on since March and many of us have not seen an extra penny. It’s unfair. We feel alone in this. Fighting a win/lose battle that may never end. Where is our HAZARD pay? Could or would you leave your family to take care of COVID patients? Could or would you take the risk? Probably not. So give your Healthcare Hero’s more than a paper sign. Give us the compensation that we truly deserve!
