Marley Torres started this petition to Premier of Quebec Francois Legault

During this pandemic, Prime Minister Trudeau, Premier of Quebec Legault and all Canadians with me included have bowed their heads in gratefulness and appreciation for our dedicated medical first responders. The government has even promised a bonus for all medical personnel in the front line of this vicious pandemic. But what the hundreds of thousands of employees working on minimum wage and exposing themselves to this virus? The grocery stores, the pharmacies, the depaneurs, public transit, and several other essential stores have been working on their small salaries, overworked because of lack of employees and exposing themselves to this vicious virus. They cannot be the "forgotten heroes". They are as crucial as our medical and first responder staff. Without them none of us would have had those toilet papers to hoard, to say the least.

Because of the limitations imposed by COVID-19, my first plan of action is to start a petition online and to have it signed and shared by a minimum of 10,000 people. This petition will be an open letter to our Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier of Quebec. Legault, who hold power in the realm I will act in, to include these heroes in his bonus promise.
