Covid Variant Adds to Worker Anxieties

Workers’ Anxiety Grows as Covid Variant Casts a Shadow

Some see an undue rush by employers to get workplaces back to normal, whether by dropping precautions or imposing new rules.

When Kelly Harris, a personal grocery shopper in Steubenville, Ohio, was vaccinated in March against Covid-19, it was a huge relief. “I felt the weight of the world off my shoulders,” she said. Her sense of relief has turned to dread. After most supermarkets eased masking requirements in May, mask wearing plummeted in her area. She worried about bringing the virus home to her school-age children.

PETITION: I support workers and democracy!



The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act is the labor law reform we need to protect workers and unions. If the PRO Act passes in the Senate, President Biden will sign it into law. Tell your senators that you support unions, working people and the PRO Act!

Sign the Petition

Workers’ rights are under attack. Our outdated labor laws have been chipped away and weakened by anti-worker legislators. Every day, we hear about corporations openly union-busting and retaliating against workers without consequence.
