The Countdown #4

Decreased Workplace Safety

Amid a pandemic the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, under the Trump Administration has been widely criticized for its treatment of workers. 

 

 

The current administration enacted harmful workplace safety policies before the Covid-19 Pandemic that made American workers vulnerable. They have fewer inspectors now than ever before in the history of the organization resulting in fewer inspections. 

 

 

Workers saying they experience retaliation for reporting pandemic related workplace violations are dismissed without investigation 54% of the time. They ignore these issues while businesses that put workers in danger continue to operate.

 

 

Joe Biden has a four-point plan for essential workers. Establishing and maintaining better workplace health and safety standards is part of that comprehensive plan. Joe knows protecting our essential workers protects our communities. A full plan to combat this virus is what will really get all of America back to work.
