Tell the Senate to Fix Paid Leave Requirements in
H.R. 6201! – Floor Vote THIS WEEK!
This week, the House of Representatives passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201). While Congress must act quickly to respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are concerned that the bill's broad employee paid leave requirements would leave supermarkets shorthanded during a time of crisis.
Independent grocers are already facing staffing challenges at a time of unprecedented demand, and our members need flexibility in managing their workforce to ensure the public continues to have access to food.
Please ask your Senator to consider to provide relief to grocers from the mandatory leave requirements of H.R. 6021, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, so that our industries can continue to do what they do best, provide groceries to the American public.
