Stand with Restaurant Workers

Demand Congress Pass the Essential Workers Bill of Rights Now!

Restaurant workers are Essential Workers.

Often underpaid, unnoticed and undervalued, they are our indispensable lifeline in this pandemic as they put their lives at risk to ensure our health, safety and security by delivering medicine and groceries to our doorstep and meals to our table.

Restaurant workers experience the daily challenges of being on the frontline—the majority of them are denied paid sick leave and hazard pay. Many of them don’t have access to personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, hand sanitizers and gloves.

Restaurant workers are Essential Workers who sacrifice a lot so that our daily life can continue to function. They work long hours while their families and loved ones are also in a dire situation.

We need our Essential Workers. They need us to get the essential protections that they deserve. It’s time to to tell Congress to pass the Essential Workers Bill of Rights that would provide restaurant workers with:

  • Paid sick leave and paid medical/family leave
  • Hazard pay and premium compensation
  • Right to return and job protections
  • Proper healthcare
  • Childcare support
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Safe and health standards at the workplace
  • Accountability from corporations
  • Protection for collective bargaining agreements

Sign the petition below. Our collective voice will be a powerful statement to pass the Essential Workers Bill of Rights!
