    Now there is a spectrum tech that infected a mother and two kids. She was told that spectrum is checking employees daily which is a lie. I don't know about you'll but customer refuse to stay 6ft and even 3ft away. We are boxed in a home we cant run or jump out a window. Read the article on the spectrum tech infecting the customer our company quickly points the blame on the tech. We are doing ridiculous jobs right now they dont care about us.

    Yes I understand your point but your looking at as a government not a business. This is about one entity choosing not to take care of its employees. Putting hazard pay aside why is spectrum not providing the protection for its employees. In my eyes all jobs are essential regardless what they are. Because of people dont have income to spend money this country is going to loose a lot of small businesses. I would shut up about hazard pay if they providing hand sanitizer, gloves, and mask but they aren't. If there aren't able to get them its because they never took it seriously. In return we are risking our lives.

    I chose to work there and like I stated I enjoy my job it's we are not giving the protection that is required from not catching the virus and working in hazardous conditions. Thats what this thread it about. Are you serious about quitting the job? Both companies you mentioned are having the same issue. Did you just get on this thread to argue because I really dont have time.

    3 options???

    Do be honest I've never heard of the 3 options ??
    Options means you have a choice. We dont have a choice.

    Hazard pay

    Hazard pay and price gouging are not the same?
    You can die from working in hazardous conditions but not from rice gouging.

    Hazard pay

    Well if our government is making it mandatory to stay six feet apart but yet our customers refuse to then it makes impossible for us to be at a safe distance. That is considered to be unsafe. In 1918
    50 million died of the Spanish flu and the same requirement that are set in place. They didnt have cable/internet tech entering people home back them. The problem here is we aren't giving any protection from our company. We can spread Coronavirus house to house and not even know it. Are you Essential?

    You can't die from Price gouging but you can die from being forced to work in dangerous conditions with no protection so my answer is no!

    No protection

    I work for spectrum and we are doing overtime. I havent personally seen management in the office since all this started. I'm starting to think they are working from home. I can't confirm that but everytime I go to the office at least 3 times a week I never see them. We still haven't got any protection and being sent on ridiculous jobs. Like adding a TV in the grarge or moving a modem to a different room just because the parent doesn't want to see the light blinking. Regardless of what job I go on all the customers come closer them 3ft away. I tell them repeatedly please step bavj but they never do. We are being forced to break social distancing at every job which makes no since. They're talking about getting hand sanitizer and gloves but make no mention of mask. Don't get me wrong I feel blessed to have a job and working extra hours but I had to purchase my own gloves and hand sanitizer and I bought mask but Iam almost postive we are told not to wear them. The only reason I say that is because there are no mention of mask in any of the emails .The only reason I want hazard pay is if I get sick at least my family will have a little extra money to help them if something should happen to me. We are entering at least 35 homes a week. The company I felt honored and proud to work for has broken my heart for seeking revenue over our health and safety.
