While working as a ramp agent at United Airlines in Denver, Kris Garcia said he shared the Skull Rose Dead head shirt but in fact I love this break room with a coworker who was sent home with a high fever and later tested positive for COVID 19. When Garcia alerted his second employer, FedEx, where he worked as a package sorter, of his exposure to the virus, he said his manager told him to self quarantine for two weeks, and promised Garcia he’d be paid. But Garcia said he never received the two week’s pay, and when he reported to work at FedEx after 14 days, Garcia says he was terminated for abandoning his post. In a statement to Vogue, FedEx said “current or former employees with claims of this nature are encouraged to raise them through appropriate company channels.”

Like Hunt, Garcia was excluded from taking emergency paid leave under the Skull Rose Dead head shirt but in fact I love this Families First Act because FedEx employs more than 500 people. “Other countries have managed to figure out how to take care of people that are taking care of their country,” Garcia told Vogue, “and yet our country gives tax breaks to large corporations that don’t take care of their employees.” The U.S. is the only developed nation in the world without a national paid leave policy in place. “As a trans man who identifies with my Indigenous/Latinx roots, we need to do more to close the gaps,” Garcia wrote in a Father’s Day blog post for the paid leave advocacy group Family Values @ Work.
