“We urge you to use your emergency powers to preserve medical benefits, halt evictions, prevent utility shut-offs, and provide emergency income assistance”

Working Washington

Community organizations from across the state are calling on our political leaders to use their emergency powers to address the looming economic impacts of the coronavirus crisis by taking four bold steps: preserve medical coverage, impose an eviction moratorium, halt utility shut-offs, and provide access to Emergency Income Assistance.

March 8, 2020

To Governor Inslee, and County Executives and Mayors across Washington State:

We are writing to ask you to use your emergency powers to ease the looming economic impacts of the coronavirus crisis. With tens of thousands currently working from home, numerous public events canceled, tourism severely depressed, and “social distancing” encouraged, we are beginning to see dramatic reductions in demand at restaurants, coffee shops, and other businesses in the Seattle area. This has already led to large-scale cuts to hours for service industry workers, and it is likely not simply a short-term issue, or a localized one; telecommuting recommendations for tech workers already extend through the end of the month, and most experts anticipate the virus will likely continue its spread across the state and across the country in the weeks ahead.

These kinds of broad, sudden, and sustained reductions in workers’ income can cause severe financial strain, particularly when nearly half of people in our country enter this crisis having less than $400 saved up for an emergency. Spiraling economic insecurity could have compounding impacts on the economy: as cuts to demand lead to cuts to hours, which lead to cuts to income, which lead to more cuts to demand, which lead to further cuts to hours, and on and on.

Public health is a central responsibility of government, and must be our shared priority — but economic insecurity is itself a public health issue. Having the money you need to support yourself and access to a safe place to live and other basic necessities are prerequisites to ensuring you can stay at home when you are sick, care for your family and community, appropriately weigh risks, and make thoughtful decisions about your health.

And while our state has what are among the nation’s strongest workers’ rights laws, we do not currently have the tools we need to ensure working people can emerge from this public health crisis without risk of losing their medical benefits, losing their incomes, losing access to basic utilities, or losing their homes.

Our state’s paid sick days law is a necessary start to helping workers navigate the crisis, but it’s not nearly sufficient. Because paid sick days are employer-based and accrue fairly slowly, most people working in high-turnover service jobs have few sick days available to them; independent contractors in the gig economy have no access to paid sick days at all; and almost nobody in any service-sector job has enough sick days banked to ride out a 14-day quarantine. Further, a sick day offers no benefit whatsoever in the event of a reduction in hours.

Our state’s paid family and medical leave program and strong workers compensation system are also critical supports which can and should be expanded to help mitigate the crisis. But neither is designed to address situations where workers do not personally have an illness in their household or did not contract one at work, but are nonetheless seeing economic impacts as a result of coronavirus response.

Washington state is on the front lines, and we need bold, urgent action to address the interlocking crises of public health and economic security. Microsoft and some other tech companies have already made important moves in this direction, taking responsibility at the corporate level to ensure that their shift to remote work does not cause a loss of income for the hourly workers at their locations whose jobs require their physical presence at the worksite. We are asking for similar leadership from state and local government to ensure our current public health crisis does not become a long term economic crisis.

We urge you to use your emergency powers to preserve medical benefits, halt evictions, prevent utility shut-offs, and provide emergency income assistance.

1) Preservation of medical benefits.

Most employers require employees to work a minimum number of hours to qualify for and maintain health benefits. If a worker’s hours are cut or job is lost due to reduced demand during the coronavirus response, they could quickly lose their healthcare coverage as a result — in the midst of widespread public health crisis.

Employers should be required to maintain the health benefits of their current employees, regardless of hours worked, and suspend the implementation of any other policy or practice which would otherwise terminate the healthcare benefits of anyone who currently receives such benefits. State and local government should similarly suspend any action to terminate anyone from any public plan of any kind.

2) Moratorium on evictions.

If the coronavirus response triggers sustained reductions in economic demand and household income, large numbers of workers who are already living paycheck to paycheck could soon be left unable to pay their rent and risk eviction from their homes. Further, responding to an unlawful detainer action requires renters to appear at the courthouses, regardless of their health — making it impossible for high-risk individuals to self-quarantine, and increasing their risk of contracting the virus.

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we must keep people housed. Elected leaders should suspend all unlawful detainer filings during this crisis, and county sheriffs should suspend posting writs of restitution or otherwise carrying out evictions.

3) Prevent utility shut-offs.

Widespread loss of income will also likely cause increased numbers of people to fall behind on bills and risk having their water, gas, electricity, and other basic utility services shut-off. The impacts of utility shut-offs are severe in any circumstances, but would be even more severe in the midst of a coronavirus-related public health emergency. For example, it is vital that people have access to hot water in order to wash their hands.

All public and private utilities doing business in the state should halt all utility shut-offs during this crisis
. This specifically includes companies which provide internet and cell service, as they are critically important channels to provide accessible, accurate, and timely public health information.

4) Emergency Income Assistance.

Just as higher wages mean more customers and a growing economy, lower demand can lead directly to reduced incomes, which can further depress demand. Government should step in to break this cycle by providing emergency assistance to “backfill” a substantial share of any income lost to any worker during this crisis, regardless of the specific circumstances of the income reduction, regardless of whether or not these circumstances are directly or indirectly tied to coronavirus, and regardless of classification as an employee or contractor.

A new Emergency Income Assistance program could be rolled out quickly through the existing infrastructure used to pay unemployment benefits — though it would cover any reduction in work income, not just loss of employment — and could be funded through the release of surplus monies in the state budget stabilization account. Funds could be paid through simplified access to a combination of expanding partial unemployment benefits in the event of hours reductions, a waiver of the “waiting week” and job search requirements currently attached to unemployment benefits, expanding paid family and medical leave benefits to cover preventive quarantine, and expanding workers compensation benefits to cover exposure on the job.

We also ask our elected leaders to call on the private sector to step up. Large businesses should make workers whole for any pay lost due to this public health crisis, including by paying for canceled shifts. They should also do everything possible to ensure the safety of workers and customers, including being transparent about exposure risks and providing adequate tools, equipment, and training.


It is critical for as many people as possible to heed public health recommendations and take action to limit and slow the spread of coronavirus. In order to ensure that happens we must together take action to limit the economic impact of coronavirus.

We all have a role to play in this crisis. We urge public officials and corporate leaders to show leadership by taking these four bold steps to protect public health, provide economic security, and do right by workers and the community at large.
