Ashley Kramer started this petition to Representative Ron Estes and

Under current legislation for COVID19 pay under the Family First Corona Virus Response Act health care workers and emergency personnel are excluded. This means any one working for a healthcare company including nurses, administration, housekeeping, dietary workers, and many more will not recieve pay if they have no PTO and are quarntined due to this virus. As well as emergency personnel. The exact exclusion is as follows. 

Employers of Health Care Providers or Emergency Responders may elect to exclude such employees from eligibility for the leave provided under the Act.

The very people that are excluded from this protection are the people on the front lines. Risking their health and the health of their families to keep others safe and healthy. They should be protected in the same manner as everyone else financially. This group of workers will gladly serve and protect the community but at this time we need your help protecting them.

Join me in telling our representatives that this is not okay. Tell them that you stand behind healthcare workers and emergency personnel. 

Thank you for joining the cause to help correct legislation and protect not only healthcare and emergency personell but you as well!
