Health care workers throughout the Omaha metro area are faced with a potentially dangerous situation every time they walk through those front doors. Hospitals are taking advantage of these workers, knowing that their spouses and families do not have jobs and an income to fall back on. These workers are facing COVID-19 head-on with a lack of PPE and a lack of hazard pay. They are continuously putting their lives on the line to fight this virus and save lives. Still, they are NOT receiving any compensation or benefits. Families are in quarantine away from loved ones. Nurses, techs, and doctors have to watch their families through windows or Facetime and aren't able to see their families for who knows how long. Their daycare expenses are increasing due to surges in the industry and have no other choice than to pay. Nebraska Medicine has made it well known to its employees that childcare is not their issue. If we expect healthcare workers to put their lives and their family's lives at an increased risk, then they deserve to receive hazard pay in some form. Grocery store workers are receiving compensation for their role in combating this virus; it's time we stepped up and did the same for our healthcare workers. Healthcare workers are saving lives; it's time we support these heroes by ensuring that their needs are taken care of as well. Please sign and share this petition to demand that leadership at hospitals in Omaha give these essential workers the benefits they deserve.
