We have never faced a challenge like COVID-19. Every day, healthcare workers risk their own lives, health, and that of their families to provide care. Too many have done this without having access to testing, without paid sick time, without the support of management, and without proper PPE.
Their courage demands recognition and their experiences call for change. In the past few weeks, SEIU Healthcare PA members have spoken to countless reporters to sound the alarm on unsafe conditions:
