Stop stalling – fund paid pandemic leave for health, aged care, and disability support workers
Health, aged care, and disability support workers cannot socially distance from the people they work with and are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19.
Many of these frontline heroes are in low paid and insecure work and cannot afford to take time off.
Saying no to a shift can mean the difference between putting food on the table or going hungry.
Paid pandemic leave for all health, aged care and disability support workers is not just the right thing to do, it is a critical public health measure.
