Challenges for Essential Workers As States "Reopen"

COVID is resurging without safe plans and a clear path forward.

This week’s #WalkoutWednesday conversation with SEIU President Mary Kay Henry, Poor People's Campaign Co-Chair Rev. Dr. William Barber II and frontline workers highlighted the resurgence of COVID and the challenges for essential workers as states “reopen” without safe, well-managed plans and a clear path forward.

"Our hospital had to shut down elective surgeries again and I don’t know how long before we get back to normal. I may have to file for unemployment," said Michelle Harvey, Operating Room Tech and SEIU Texas member.
