ABSTRACT

Cost of Republican Inaction, Volume 2: Actions Speak Louder Than Words 'Essential Workers Deserve More Than a Thank You'   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Essential workers are treating our sick, keeping our streets clean and safe, providing food for our tables, stocking the shelves at our grocery stores and pharmacies, caring for our children and seniors, delivering essential supplies and medications, and so much more. As we continue to fight COVID-19 in our communities, essential workers - more than 40 percent of whom are people of color - are going above and beyond to ensure that our most basic needs are met. These workers have had our backs - we must ensure that we have theirs. These workers deserve more than a 'thank you'-- they deserve action. 'President Trump and Mitch McConnell are refusing to provide essential workers the hazard pay they have earned and the safe workplaces they deserve.' The importance of workplace safety standards and protections will only grow as states begin to reopen their economies and more people head back to work."
