At least 12,514 @TysonFoods workers have gotten sick and at least 39 have died. But Tyson STILL refuses to improve working conditions and blocked worker-driven safety solutions proposed by its shareholders. #ShameonTyson
Frontline workers have kept us running for months, sometimes at the expense of their own well-being.
We must reimagine workplace safety and provide:

For many injured workers in NY, English is not their 1st language, making it difficult to understand the workers' comp paper process. Let's pass A10067/S7843 championed by @JoinJoyner & @jessicaramos to require Workers' Comp decisions be issued in the workers' native language.
Thank you @Biaggi4NY for your ongoing solidarity with nail salon workers and signing on to the Nail Salon Accountability Act!
Let's rebuild a better NY where workers rights are respected, customers are safe, and salon owners can run healthy and sustainable businesses.
There is a growing demand in our city for domestic workers. Yet these jobs remain underpaid, undervalued, and without benefits. It’s time for nannies, house cleaners, and home health aides in NYC to have basic human rights protection, paid personal time, and a retirement plan.
The #COVID19 pandemic is stressful. Coping with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger.
