COVID-19 Response: Invisible Problems

Unappreciated essential workers

Us essential workers would really like an incentive for the work we do. We're out there risking our own health not to mention our families.

It's upsetting to know that all of the essential workers who keep America running aren't worth any kind of boost at all.

People without computers cannot order food online Selected

Económico y psicológico

.Google Translation:
"You cannot work in essential places where you do not know in what working conditions we work. Fast food! Psychologically, you are afraid of infecting yourself and your family members for a minimum wage. The government tells you to stay home and the EDD denies you aid if you make more than $ 100 per week. As if your expenses were $ 400 per week.

Safety for undocumented individuals

Although this is a huge issue in the U.S, how do we support undocumented workers during this time? Many are on the frontlines of the COVID Response but are receiving little to no financial assistance. They are also being exposed to the virus at an alarming rate.
