Workers are the hidden heroes of the pandemic crisis
This pandemic has affected us all.
But it is working people who have carried Australia through this time. Many of us have literally been on the frontline.
For many essential workers this comes with great risk. Even while wearing personal protective equipment, health workers are 3.4 times as likely to contract COVID-19 as the rest of the population.
Many more workers have moved mountains to rapidly transition to working remotely so they can keep services available and businesses open.
Many of us have had our hours, pay and jobs cut. And some of us and have had to use our super just to survive.
It has been union members who have campaigned and won JobKeeper, JobSeeker and pandemic leave. Our efforts have saved jobs, livelihoods and lives.
But no matter the workplace, it’s Australian workers who have carried the load during this pandemic.
