I completely agree that anyone whose level of risk is significantly heightened should receive additional benefits. But, I do want to point out that not ALL “essential” jobs are high-risk necessarily. Many of them absolutely are, but just using myself as an example – I work for an immuno-oncology company supporting drug development.
I’m not really increasing my risk of being infected by going to work. There’s absolutely no reason I should be compensated any more with this pandemic going on.I’m a project manager in construction. Much of my work is done in the office. I make a lot more than minimum wage.
