Covid-19 Stimulus Relief Package - the people working for the people because you deserve i

Many of us have personally been negatively impacted by Covid-19 or know someone who has been. We were promised at the start of the lock downs that if we did our part to help stop the spread or "flatten the curve", the Government would do their part to provide us relief during these unprecedented times. Many of us lost our jobs, put our own lives at risk as Frontline workers, and had to stay home to teach our children as schools closed. We gave up Graduations, prom, birthday parties, family reunions, weddings, vacations, and so much more. Congress acted quickly to provide us with quick, temporary relief while they worked on a more comprehensive package that would support us through the lock downs and throughout the Pandemic. The people have yet to see the full Government support they were promised. Instead, Congress continues to put their own Political agenda's ahead of the people and the peoples needs. Families that once had well stocked cupboards, fridges, and freezers are now going hungry. Individuals who had anywhere from months to years of savings built up are now staring at $0 balance bank accounts. Congress must fulfill their end of the promises made. Congress must act now in a way that addresses finishing what they started as well as takes us through the remainder of the Pandemic.  We need 6 months retroactive checks at $2,000 for all Adults and $1,200 for child dependents 17 and under up to a family of 5 (3 children).  We need a minimum of $450 per week in FPUC retroactive to at least August 1st 2020, through January 31st and then reexamined for potential extension. We need an additional minimum of 13 week extension on State UI benefits.  We need Hazard Pay for Frontline workers somewhere between $5,000-$10,000 per Individual who has worked at least 2 months (consecutive or not) during the Pandemic. Employees shall be responsible for applying on their own behalf and responsible for providing any documentation required.    Congress needs to do better. Congress needs to be better. We are also calling for all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate to have paychecks withheld until they can fulfill their duty to the people and provide the relief we are entitled to and deserve. We did our part. It is time for them to do theirs.  #PurplePowerCaucus #PURPLEPOWER #LALATE #PurplePowerFamily #PurplePowerCheck #PurplePowerFPUC #PurplePowerHazardPay    We are all in this together. Let our voices be heard. ���

Petition to Gavin Newsom

Fire Sharon Hilliard-Director of the California EDD

The mandatory shut down of most businesses in California due to Covid-19 in Mid-March 2020 has left more than 6 million Californians unemployed through no fault of their own.   6 million have filed claims - but as many as 40% are not receiving any benefits nearly 4 months into the pandemic!!  This is clearly due to a lack of leadership and know-how at the California EDD. It's not getting better, it's getting worse by the day.  California is the technology capital of the world! It's also the wealthiest state in the United States and the 5th largest economy in the world! Clearly, California doesn't lack the know-how or the human resources, or capital to solve the problems at the EDD! However, 4 months in, clearly, the EDD lacks the leadership and knowledge to solve these problems and harness California's vast resources to solve the problems and get those due benefits paid NOW.  Our economic crisis, EDD's failure to pay our claims, needs the same focus as Covid-19. It's been months for thousands and the economic crisis created by EDD's incompetence is just as real as CV-19. We need competence, we leadership, we need action, and we need it NOW.  Governor Newsome: Sharon Hilliard, by her own admission, is not getting the job done!  We're calling on you to fire Sharon Hillard and find a leader that can get EDD back on track. Millions of Californians have been waiting months for their Federal and State benefits and can't wait any longer!!

Hazard Pay For Essential Nevada Hotel and Casino Employees working during the Coronavirus

ESSENTIAL NEVADA HOTEL AND CASINO EMPLOYEES who are currently working during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Closures should receive HAZARD PAY in addition to their regular hourly wage.  Although many Nevadans are Unemployed, they are safe from contracting COVID-19 Coronavirus at work, and are at home with their families recieving Unemployment Compensation Benefits of over $1,000 per week including Pandemic Pay. While some of our most venerable Nevadans, Essential Hotel and Casino Employees, are working in a Hazardous, Unsafe, and Unhealthy working environment, using Inadequate Personal Protective Equipment, and are working reduced schedules earning less than $400 per week without any additional compensation or help from our Government! Many Essential Nevada Hotel and Casino Employees have been employed with their Hotel and Casino for over 20 years, are Senior Citizens with Underlying Health Conditions, and are the most susceptible to contracting COVID-19 Coronavirus at work. These Essential Hotel and Casino Employees have been working throughout the COVID-19 Coronavirus Closures starting on March 19, 2020, and have been working in a Hazardous, Unsafe, and Unhealthy working environment and using inadequate Personal Protective Equipment ever since.  The Reopening of Nevada Hotels and Casinos on June 4, 2020, was a rushed and uncoordinated effort by Steve Sisolak and our Government!  Many Hotels and Casinos were unprepared to reopen and have not been able to honor their agreement to test all employees for COVID-19 Coronavirus before returning to work, to provide adequate Personal Protective Equipment to all Employees, and to enforce Social Distancing Guidelines for all Employees and Guests, therefore creating a Hazardous, Unsafe, and Unhealthy working environment for Essential Nevada Hotel and Casino Employees and making the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus more difficult to control. So far more than 22 Essential Nevada Hotel and Casino Employees and family members have died from COVID-19 Coronavirus and hundreds more have been hospitalized since the COVID-19 Coronavirus Closures started on March 19, 2020! Please Sign this Petition in Support of Hazard Pay in addition to regular hourly wage for Essential Nevada Hotel and Casino Employees who are currently working in a Hazardous, Unsafe, and Unhealthy working environment during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Closures. We are ALL in this together ❤️  Jason Di Cario  Essential Nevada Hotel & Casino Employee Overnight Attendant, Las Vegas, NV
