What is ALWAYS ESSENTIAL?

La pandemia de COVID-19 ha revelado finalmente lo que millones de trabajadores siempre han sabido: son ESENCIALES para garantizar que tengamos todo lo que necesitamos. Desde los trabajadores agrícolas hasta los empleados de las tiendas de comestibles, los enfermeros y el personal de los hospitales, hasta los conductores de reparto y los trabajadores de los depósitos, y tantos otros, somos esenciales. No solo durante la pandemia, sino SIEMPRE.

ALWAYS ESSENTIAL is working people, activists, and organizations joining together to transform what’s possible for essential workers — especially those in low-wage sectors who  are disproportionately Black and other workers of color. We are working in cities, counties, states, and at the federal level to put essential workers first and build the lasting change  we want to see.

Together, we can and will win improve health and safety standards, better pay, and working conditions for essential workers. We can strengthen workplace power for a broad set of workers in essential sectors and negotiate with stakeholders for higher standards, while also taking on issues that are important to working people.
