With the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world has seen how vital healthcare workers are to our communities; some have even given their lives to safe others. Most of our healthcare workers have mountains of student loan debts, they work long hours, and some are underpaid.

On twitter, one healthcare worker wrote, “I’ve been paying on a $40k student loan since Feb. 2014, I have not missed a single payment. I now owe $41k. How is that even possible?” Also, on twitter, a medical doctor wrote, “I owed roughly $365,000 after medical school. I’ve paid for 6.5 years, ~$2500 a month, approximately $165,000, my current balance is $350,000” So where is the light at the end of this tunnel?

Politicians use our student loan predicament as talking points to energize their campaign, but never actually fulfill their promises. During an economic downturn, big companies get bailouts, but who is looking out for us little guys, the healthcare workers on the frontline battling this deadly virus?

This petition is about all healthcare workers; we have to advocate for ourselves. The majority of us did not even receive a stimulus check because, according to our government, we make too much money no one considered the fact that almost half of our paycheck goes to our beloved Uncle Sam. This petition is our way of letting the change-makers know that individual healthcare worker matters, and what we do is just as important as what the airline companies, banks, The Wall Street Journal, and auto industries do. Healthcare workers are struggling financially, and we need our government to bail us out.

We deserve to live a debt-free life. To show your appreciation for healthcare workers, we are asking that you pass a bill to forgive, eradicate, dismantle, obliterate, extinguish, annihilate these massive student loans.
