This is the May 28, 2020 hearing on "Examining the Federal Government's Actions to Protect Workers from COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]," held before the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections of the Committee on Education and Labor. From the opening statement of Alma Adams: "Today's Subcommittee hearing will explore the performance of the Federal Government in protecting worker safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. [...] The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the worst worker safety crisis in OSHA's [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] 50-year history. Nothing compares. [...] We cannot lose sight of the fact that this is largely a tragedy inflicted on our Nation's essential workers, people who don't have a choice on whether they have to go to work, people who don't have a choice on whether they -- and many of those are frontliners. They are low-income workers and disproportionately people of color who don't have the luxury of teleworking from home. COVID-19 is largely a workplace disease and a community tragedy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Howard, and Loren Sweatt.
