Essential Workers Protected Us. Now It's Time We Stand Up For Them.
During the pandemic, our state's public health and public safety have depended heavily on frontline workers. They have cared for patients, stocked grocery store shelves, staffed prisons, operated public transit systems, maintained construction sites, cared for children, and ensured taxpayers had access to other important services.
Despite the risks, essential workers showed up and did their jobs while many of us worked comfortably from home.
Take 30 seconds to email Governor Ned Lamont now and ask him to support real pandemic hazard pay for frontline heroes.
