Share Supermarkets Covid-19 Profits With Their Employees

Tesco and all other supermarkets should be sharing 50% of their increased profits at this time amongst ALL of their workforce, even those who are forced off sick and those following government guidelines to self isolate.

Why is this important?

Tesco are offering their employees a 10% pay hike during this period which you are only eligible for if you take no sick days at all.

Considering their profits are skyrocketing at the moment due to these workers putting themselves and their loved ones at risk on the frontlines of the Covid-19 crisis this is nowhere near the amount of extra pay they should be receiving.

The bosses and shareholders who can easily stay inside as per the governments advice should not be the only people to truly benefit from these huge increases in profit.The workload and stress for the employees has risen drastically and this should be reflected in an increase in pay.

Now more than ever we can see that workers are what create a businesses profits so the fact that employees on leave have been there keeping the company going before this crisis means they are entitled to the benefits that supermarkets are now seeing even if they are forced out of work.

How it will be delivered

Once we gather enough support we will put pressure on the supermarkets and politicians to enact the profit shares.
