Low Paid Workers More Likely to Die From Covid-19

If you are low paid and working through the COVID-19 crisis you are more likely to die says GMB Union

GMB, the union for key workers, has described today’s ONS figures on Covid-19 related deaths as ‘horrifying’.

John Phillips, Acting GMB General Secretary, said:

“These figures are horrifying, and they were drawn up before the chaos of last night’s announcement. 

“If you are low paid and working through the COVID19 crisis you are more likely to die – that’s how stark these figures are.

“Ministers must pause any return to work until proper guidelines, advice and enforcement are in place to keep people safe.”
