Dems fought for hazard pay for frontline workers in this coronavirus response bill. The GOP blocked it.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) March 31, 2020
President Trump must give them hazard pay now.
If he doesn't, we'll keep fighting for it for nurses, doctors, FEMA, workers in distribution centers, grocery stores, and more.

He says: "I knew it could be horrible. I knew it could be maybe good."

Trump added: I could cause panic. But I don’t want to do that.
