Active in lobbying for worker-friendly laws, maritime lawyer Amie Peters is focused now on workers exposed to the most risk during the global pandemic. Many think of medical personnel as essential workers. But Peters highlights postal workers, grocery workers, and longshoremen who have been on the job, in-person, during the pandemic. Host Judson Pierce gets a legislative update from Peters on the major congressional initiatives to make Medicare fairer for workers and employers, set minimum workers comp standards nationwide, and improve federal oversight. Essential workers are a primary focus of legislative activity, Peters says, in part because their roles have been undervalued for decades and because they have demonstrated how valuable they are in this current crisis. “We say how they stood up for us. Now it’s time for America to return the favor,” Peters tells Pierce. Lawyers interested in making laws more worker-friendly can write, email, and call their congressmen to emphasize the importance of essential workers, says Peters, who tells Pierce that “workers comp is an everyone issue” and largely bipartisan. Amie Peters is a plaintiffs lawyer with Blue Water Legal in Edmonds, Washington. Special thanks to our sponsor, PInow.
