I'm sorry, but 'hazard pay' for particular 'essential employees', is, IMO, nothing but a vote buy. These people have jobs, and they chose to stick with it. I do think that they employers can do more to protect them, but the additional pay from everyone else's pockets? Healthcare workers are about the only ones who I would maybe consider this for, but not at the taxpayer expense.

*For the notes, I am an 'essential employee'.

??

There are many things that HC workers come into contact on a daily basis that is just as deadly as COVID. They knew that when they went into the profession.

The question is, do they deserve more money for doing the job they signed up to do? Insulting another poster or calling them out for NOT working in that industry, does nothing to prove a point, one way or the other.

What part of 'I am an essential employee' was unclear?

I have constant exposure to the people who deal with the masses.

If you can't stand the heat or the pay, get out of the kitchen.

This proposed crap is just as stupid as when Slick Willie wanted civilians to make the streets safe for "our police".
