SENATORS DEMAND PAID SICK DAYS FOR AMERICANS: Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Patty Murray (D-WA), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) are calling on companies to offer paid sick leave as coronavirus continues to spread across the country, citing public health should be everyone’s top priority. Major tech companies, including Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, have all pledged to continue to pay hourly workers who have been asked to stay home. Yesterday, Walmart announced that it will add on two weeks of paid sick leave to any employee affected by coronavirus, sparking the conversation for other corporations. 25% of Americans do not get paid sick days and face lost wages if they don't come into work while they're sick.
