-Workers that are deemed essential are continuously coming into contact with a multitude of potentially Covid-19 positive individuals everyday, consistently putting themselves, coworkers, and families at a higher risk of contracting the virus themselves.

-Workers that are deemed essential are coming home to family members who are unable to work due to Covid-19, bringing on a financial burden.

- Over 92,000 cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the State of Michigan alone with well over 2,400 of those in Washtenaw county. Michigan health officials have reported over 600 new cases since August third, 2020. (Statistics retrieved from MLive.com).

- Reinstating hazardous pay to essential workers would not only ease workplace anxieties, and stressors but also help to relieve financial burdens due to Covid-19 and its pervasive impact on many of the working class.
