The New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC) is holding a Virtual March for Workers’ Memorial Day on Sunday 26 April. Read their invite below:
Please Join Us Sunday @ 1pm (US east coast) for a Virtual March for Workers’ Memorial Day
In this time of COVID-19, please spend an hour with us for a virtual Workers’ Memorial Day march to honor workers who have fallen ill or died from this deadly virus. This is a time to thank and honor essential workers’ who put their health and lives on the line every day when they leave the safety of their homes to go to work. From nurses and emergency responders to transit workers, grocery store clerks, warehouse workers and more. All workers are at risk!
Workers’ Memorial Day is a day to honor all workers who have suffered an occupational illness or disease or have suffered a workplace fatality. The sad truth is, most workplace deaths are preventable. As a society, we must put more of an emphasis on worker health and safety and an end to the injustice and the damage corporate greed causes working families.
On average, a worker dies every 100 minutes in the United States. Every 100 minutes a family is ripped apart. This must end.
Please join us to mourn those we lost, honor those who continue to work during the pandemic and fight like hell for change. You can do all of this from the comfort of your living room.
