Support Essential Workers Bill of Rights

14 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I’m contacting you today to ask you to support Senator Warren and Representative Khanna’s Essential Workers Bill of Rights and provide real protections for essential workers. Frontline workers — our postal workers, nurses, EMTs and health care workers, delivery drivers, restaurant employees, grocery, transit and domestic workers and others — are the backbone of our nation’s response to this crisis. We need to provide our frontline workers the safety equipment, pay, & job protections they deserve. We need an Essential Workers Bill of Rights — and any coronavirus relief package must put workers front and center. I am urging you to support protections for essential workers, including these policies: Truly universal paid sick leave and family and medical leave. Health and safety protections, including personal protective equipment (PPE) provided by employers at no cost to workers. Protections for collective bargaining agreements & whistleblowers with safety concerns. Health care security to ensure all essential workers get the care they need during this crisis, regardless of their immigration status. Robust funding to help struggling child care providers during this pandemic and reliable, safe, healthy, and high-quality child care for essential workers.
