Server at Carmine’s Italian restaurant Times Square

Let’s start with I WILL be going back to work once this is over. It’s just a matter of when. The “when” is what’s keeping me up at night. I’m tapping into my savings to pay bills. It’s keeping me afloat but I have no room to breathe. My asthma meds alone are costing me $300 a month. I’m on the waitlist for Medicaid, but that can be later rather than sooner. I’m really just trying to get by. Anything helps.

I have many bills to pay: rent, electric, phone, food for my family. I would be very grateful!)

Mesera (Server)

Hola Buenas Tardes Debido an Covid 19 sali del trabajo el 15 DE marzo.. Y tuve que ir a la emergencia el 17 ufff con mucho Sintomas a lo cual tuve qua mantener una Cuarentena obligatiria por licencia Medica Cuando volvieron a reabrir a finales DE Abril disminuyeron el personal y no estoy laborando . (Hello and good evening! Due to COVID-19, I lost my job on March 15. On the 17th I had to go to the emergency room because I was having symptoms, and then had to self-quarantine per medical advice. When I returned to my job on April 15, they had laid off many staff and I now have no work. This has has affected me both economically and emotionally. I am not receiving any assistance from the government, and can’t unless/until I acquire a change in status.)

We’ve been quarantined for 3 months now, my partner has yet to receive unemployment, which stretches the little funds we have extremely far. We no longer have savings left and are looking at Pandemic Relief expiring at the end of July with terror

Freelance Singer and server at STK Steakhouse

Hi there!
Both of my forms of income have been decimated due to covid 19. I was laid off from my steakhouse job and currently there is no chance of gigs or performing anywhere in NYC for the foreseeable future. Additionally, I moved in the beginning of March at considerable personal expense so to about 10 days later have zero source of income has been a huge challenge.

Share the love, share #S4SNYC
Please spread the word far and wide to friends, coworkers, or anyone that’s eaten at a restaurant at some point in their lives, who may be interested in showing some solidarity now!
