Give Lowe's workers an extra $2 per hour hazard pay as they remain open during COVID19

Due to COVID-19, nearly all non essential businesses around the country are currently being shut down. Due to such a high demand in home improvement essentials as well as home appliances, water heaters, electrical and plumbing maintenance supplies, and other homegoods, Lowe's will remain open admist the crisis to serve their customers. Even in a state wide shelter in place order Lowe's has made it clear they will not be closing its doors.
While Lowe's has issued a statement saying they will offer 2 weeks of normal pay if an employee is to come down with coronavirus or be placed under mandatory quarantine, employees who are not sick have no choice but to remain working at this time and I believe Lowe's can do better for those committed employees who are risking their health for the benefit of the public and the company they have vested themselves in.
Lowe's employees are taking on a much larger workload in a both stressful and compromised environment due to being around the general public and with great possibly of risking exposure to the virus and even more so, bringing it home to their loved ones.
These risks more than warrant and increased hazard pay. I am urging Lowe's CEO Marvin Ellison to meet these needs. Please sign this petition and repost and forward to your friends so we can show Marvin that we deserve better and together we can all have a Lowe's Safe Day!
