Michael Bannon, Bantec’s Chairman and CEO stated that: “we received a letter from the Under Secretary of Defense stating that we are an essential business in the Department of Defense’s fight against the COVID-19 threat. The letter stated ‘We need your support and dedication in these trying times to ensure the security of this Nation. I understand that this national emergency presents a challenge and we are dedicated to working closely with you to ensure the safety of the workforce and accomplishments of the national security mission.’ We are proud to be in this fight, and we look forward to helping Uncle Sam conquer this virus.” One of our strategic alliance partners converted their production line to create Tyvek protective gowns for first responders and hospital workers. We intend to offer that product immediately for sale to the U.S. Government. We intend to do our part to make America well again. In addition, we decided to pay our frontline warehouse workers an additional five dollars an hour hazard pay. The employees asked if we could call it Hero Pay. We really liked that idea, so we are calling it Hero Pay.
