Nueva Jersey debe hacer más para proteger a los trabajadores de almacén del COVID-19

[en inglés] Governor Murphy has implemented important measures to protect New Jersey workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as COVID-19 cases in warehouses grow, warehouse workers at companies like Barnes & Noble, Amazon and others are demanding additional state action. The Warehouse Workers Stand Up coalition has proposed Governor Murphy enact additional and immediate measures to protect warehouse workers.

(NorthJersey.com) [en inglés] Somewhat lost amid the uproar around Gov. Phil Murphy’s directive that New Jersey parks be closed to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus was another executive order issued last week: No. 122. That order calls for more restrictions on essential retail stores, such as supermarkets — including limiting stores to a 50% occupancy rate and greater protections for workers at warehouses and in manufacturing, because, Murphy said, “no one should be working where social distancing isn’t being practiced to its fullest extent.”
