COVID-19 in Pa.: We have to ensure care for our caregivers

By Chris Woods – published by Pennsylvania Capital-Star – March 29, 2020. It was a horrible day. The headlines screamed, “Stocks Plunge, Rattled by Oil Market and Coronavirus”; “Coronavirus: Italy death toll soars amid travel ban;” “CDC warns against long plane trips and cruises as coronavirus cases mount.” But America’s most important workers failed to make as many front pages as Wall Street, and the travel and tourism industries. So far, the data show that those most vulnerable to the coronavirus are the elderly and those with health issues.  Unless we are prepared for even more disturbing headlines from America’s nursing homes, we must take care of our nursing home workers.

In 2019, thousands of Pa. workers lost their jobs with little notice. Our lawmakers can fix that.

It’s been a rough 2019 for many workers in Philadelphia, with several major employers closing with little or no warning. Back in late June of 2019, members of District 1199C at Hahnemann University Hospital received shocking news: the corporate owners of the hospital planned to abruptly close down the facility. This put over 2,500 people out of work, including 700 members from our union.
