The COVID–19 pandemic is hitting hospitality workers especially hard as the industry shuts down and businesses lay off almost their entire workforce. As workers struggle to provide for their families, they continue to stand strong and demand that any industry bailout puts workers first.
The UNITE HERE Education and Support Fund will be used to help hospitality workers:
•maintain family health insurance coverage during layoffs or reduced hours
•pay for food, rent, and utilities
•replace wages lost due to reduced hours and tips
•retrain for new jobs during the business downturn
UNITE HERE is an organization of working people, coming together to win dignity and higher standards in the hospitality industry and beyond. The organization represents workers throughout the U.S. and Canada who work in the hotel, gaming, food service, airport, textile, manufacturing, distribution, laundry, and transportation industries.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
