We are all depending on service workers during the shelter-in-place. By protecting them, we protect the public.
All of us are dependent on frontline, essential service workers like delivery people, grocery clerks, restaurant & hospitality workers, ride-share drivers, janitors, warehouse workers, and security officers to feed us and provide us with what we need to survive. Those workers – who are predominantly people of color – are not only on the front lines of the crisis, but among the hardest hit economically.
Oakland City Council is set to vote in April. Urge them to VOTE YES to expand paid sick days for ALL with NO loopholes, and ensure folks can return to work after the shelter-in-place! Sign the petition at bitly.com/PaidSickDaysOak
