The UFCW is asking employers to pay workers a minimum wage of at least $15 an hour:
“Frontline workers in the food-retailing, food-processing, meatpacking and healthcare industries should be paid a minimum of $15 per hour in light of the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the United States, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) said Thursday. The union also wants grocers and other employers that have ended “hazard pay” programs to restore the extra compensation.”
