The Republican-led Legislature needs to come back into session and pass the Healthcare Heroes Act.
We need to provide more support for our front-line health care workers, especially now that COVID-19 cases are surging in Wisconsin (539 new cases yesterday and 601 today).
From the article: “The Healthcare Heroes Act would provide paid sick leave, hazard pay, and healthcare coverage to employees considered frontline workers. It also would pay for COVID-19 tests for healthcare workers.”
“This is not a partisan issue,” [Lisa] Gordon said. “We need our legislators to stop playing politics.”
The funds are there! We just need our Republican Legislature to put party-line politics aside and put #PeopleFirst. Our health care workers put their lives on the line every day, and we need to protect and support them.
