We’ve been putting our lives on the line every day since the beginning of the COVID crisis. With infection rates rising in the Northwest, it’s clear that our jobs will only become more urgent and essential–but we still don’t have the PPE and hazard pay that we’ve been demanding from day one! Meanwhile, Congress gave TRILLIONS of dollars to huge corporations to make it through the COVID crisis. We can’t be silent about this.
Remember, our elected leaders work for us, and they respond when we raise our voices. Here’s a social media toolkit with actions that you can take NOW to keep up the pressure so we can get the hazard pay and protections we need and deserve.
✅ THANK THE ELECTED LEADERS WHO STAND WITH US!
Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkely, and Washington State Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray have publicly supported a Senate essential worker bill. It’s important that we notice when our elected leaders do the right thing so they will continue to advocate for us in the future.
❌ CALL OUT THE ELECTEDS WHO PUT RICH CORPORATIONS OVER WORKERS!
We’re shocked that Oregon House Representatives Kurt Shrader and Jamie Herrera Beutler voted “no” on the HEROES Act–a bill which would give hazard pay and protections to essential workers. Even though the bill passed in the House of Representatives despite their “no” votes, we need to let them know that their votes were NOT in the best interest of the essential workers who voted them into office!
