    YES THE NURSES SHOULD PAID FOR THIS. THEY ARE VERY IMPORTANT, BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT TYPE OF WORK THAT THEY DO.

  2. Not only nurses Dental Hygienist are the highest risk health providers in getting Covid 19

  3. All essential workers should receive hazard pay across the board

    • Agreed!!

    • @Indi Pillai

      Do you mean the Radical Democrats Virus called Covid-19 to slow down the good employment job that went so high ?

      No way

    • Pass Gas
      I agree 100%
      Those who stayed home too.
      I did on Mother’s Day.
      My dad’s 100th birthday would have been in March.
      I had to miss visiting his resting place.
      The pandemic ruined that for me too.
      Those who abided by the rules ought to get something.
      Not everyone went to nursing school.

    • Susan Reed you think that you should get hazard pay for staying home? Please explain.

  4. I agree, they should get hazard pay. They are risking and also losing their lives for others and this was not always the case.

  5. Definitely! Essential Workers that have remained on the job should get additional pay as well

    I think everyone that stayed working this whole time and was dubbed to be an “essential worker” should get hazardous pay, definitely.

    I think anyone scared but worked anyway because they are essential should get pay: sanitation workers in and outside the hospital, cops, EMTs, doctors, nurses, dentists, hygienists, teachers if they are made to return to the class room without a plan, and people who secure our food (grocers, butchers, restaurant workers). We allllll deserve hazard pay.

  11. That’s shouldn’t even be a question. It’s a pandemic. Of course they should!!!

  17. The issue at had as it usually is, would be the math.

    Where do the funds to pay the essential workers generate from or come from? People who deal with red and black , profits and loss statemets and the like, may have trouble calculating hazard pay for hundreds of thousands if not millions of people for an entire year.

  18. They haven’t been that’s bad because some nurses put through a lot some nurses and doctors have kids and have been separated from kids and grand kinds and cousins that’s so sad they shouldn’t even have to pay taxes at this point

  19. I cant believe, this still a question, especially now.
