Be a Citizen Cosponsor of the Essential Workers Bill of Rights

From Congressman Ro Khanna:

Nearly 60 million Americans are still working to keep our internet running, to deliver our groceries, to make sure we have electricity, and to care for the sick.

Without these people, our nation would not function. Yet, millions are being paid pittances, and aren’t being provided the protective equipment they need to keep their families safe.

That’s why I’m proud to announce, alongside Senator Elizabeth Warren, a new Essential Workers Bill of Rights that would provide hazard pay, ensure health and safety protections, provide paid leave, and more. Will you sign on as a citizen co-sponsor?

Essential Workers Bill of Rights

1. Health and safety protections including PPE.
2. Robust premium compensation retroactive to the beginning of this crisis.
3. Provide protections for collective bargaining agreements.
4. Institute truly universal paid sick leave and family and medical leave.
5. Protect whistleblowers who call attention to unsafe conditions.
6. End to worker misclassification.
7. Full health insurance for all frontline workers.
8. Support child care.
9. Give workers a seat at the table when coordinating government response.
10. Hold corporations accountable for meeting their responsibilities.
