Amazon to pay its workers COVID wage
Amazon's YYZ1 location has had three confirmed cases of COVID-19 but are refusing to compensate their workers with an adequate pay during this time where cases are rising at an increasing rate. We are unaware of who has come into contact with the virus and who has tested positive, so there is anxiety and sense of fear if we have come into contact with the individual, and potentially bringing the virus home to members of our household. There are no protective measures taking place other than the enforcement of wearing masks and socially distancing from employees. However, there are over 350 employees in the warehouse at a time, employees who need to work to pay for living expenses, to provide food and shelter for their families, and other basic necessities where income is necessary. For this reason, I urge to you sign this petition and appeal for Amazon employees to receive the pandemic premium pay.
