Today’s Action: Extend the paid sick leave requirements for employers!

This week, the United States shattered the global record for daily positive cases with a whopping 1.35 million reported. Despite this, a multitude of workplaces are shortening sick leave – and some are even requesting that COVID positive employees return to work, like nurses and teachers whose professions are experiencing significant shortages due to their high risk nature. Teachers’ and nurses’ unions are fighting tooth and nail for better hazard pay, adequate sick leave, remote options, and flat-out empathy, and yet across the country they’re being told to put their lives at risk instead of receiving adequate resources and conditions.

The workforce is struggling – but especially understaffed and underpaid is our healthcare and education systems. 25% of American hospitals have reported being critically understaffed. School districts have gone so far as to ask parents to step in as substitute teachers. At the very least, we need federally mandated paid sick leave – and quickly.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and demand that they extend the paid sick leave requirements for employers!

Guaranteed paid sick leave can slow the spread by ensuring less COVID positive people are interacting with others, without risking their paycheck. It can ensure that teachers and nurses are able to isolate themselves at home, not forced to continue working. 

No one should have to choose between paying their rent and exposing coworkers to a potentially fatal illness. 

Today we are at 850,000 COVID deaths and counting. That doesn’t include the deaths of those that have died due to the lack of hospital beds, overwhelmed ICUs across the country, and even while waiting extreme amounts of time for medical attention. It’s clear we are not out of the COVID trenches yet, and yet federal COVID sick leave ended an entire year ago.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Members of Congress and call for the extension of COVID paid sick leave requirements!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to remove McCarthy as Minority Leader, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
