The rise and spread of the novel coronavirus has impacted us all. Unfortunately, many Hoosiers have been left struggling to stay safe and stay afloat as this pandemic threatens our health and security.
Indiana Senate Democrats have heard from constituents, essential workers and health care providers from all over the state. We know that there are Hoosiers on the front lines who are working in conditions that go against CDC guidelines. We also recognize that the lack of sufficient personal protective equipment has put health care and essential workers at greater risk. These are serious issues, and our caucus has reached out to the governor urging him to address these safety concerns.
Hoosiers deserve the right to work in safe conditions. You shouldn’t be made to work under conditions that threatens your health and safety and puts your family at greater risk. As more Hoosiers look toward returning to work, it’s essential to ensure all workplaces offer adequate protections.
It is our mission to ensure your struggles are not going unheard or unaddressed.
That’s why we are starting a new campaign to share the stories of Hoosiers who have been impacted. If you are a front line worker, a Hoosier out of work, a health care provider or just someone who wants to share your story, please send them our way.
Email your testimony, a quote or a story to [email protected] and help us elevate your voice.
We want to use these stories to make sure the concerns, struggles and voices of everyday Hoosiers are being heard and addressed during and after this pandemic.
