Zachary Isham started this petition to President of the United States and

COVID-19 has shown us who the true heroes are in this world and what we stand for. Today Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics across the country are working grueling hours, moonlighting to make ends meet and dealing with death on an unimaginable rate. 

For years it has been drilled into our heads that we have to have an education to make money. But have we asked, why is that? Why are the ones risking everything for everyone else being paid so little? The ones that brought your mother, father, daughter, son or best friend back to life and gave them a second chance. 

It's time this nation stands behind it's true First Responders and the ones that devote there lives to the greater good. It's time we get compensated for experience and not just education. A piece of paper means nothing in the grand scheme of things when it comes to quality patient care. Over the past year you have called us heroes and thanked us for our service. Now back your thanks, give us what we deserve because without us, many of your loved ones would not be here today. Without this, your thanks means nothing and we will continue to be forgotten. For too long have EMT's and Paramedics lived in the darkness and gone unnoticed. It is time that changes and it needs to change today.
