Johnny Grizzwold started this petition to Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and

While Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser tells us to stay indoors in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus, construction workers building luxury apartments have been deemed essential employees.

The truth is these workers are only essential to the pocketbooks of rich contractors and spreading the virus.

It is plain ignorance for Mayor Bowser to allow these works to labor side by side, often sharing portable toilets that rarely have soap or hand sanitizer, while ordering everyone else to stay home. 

The only construction that should be considered essential is CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE (e.g., a project necessary to protect the health and safety of the occupants, or construction of roads, bridges, transit facilities, utilities, hospitals or health care facilities, and homeless shelters)

Sign this petition to tell Mayor Bowser to treat everyone the same and make “non-essential” construction non-essential.

We need to save lives on DC construction sites now, and prevent workers from spreading the virus.
