Why can’t temporary benefits be permanent?

Why can’t temporary benefits be permanent?

Chuang told ABC News there are major concerns for workers with public-facing jobs who rely on their hourly wages that put them at risk during a crisis like Coronavirus. "They cannot afford to stay home when they don't feel well," he said, which is a concern "not just for these employees, but for the general public.” As companies pivot to make temporary measures for the health of their workers, Chuang said a long-term solution is imperative, especially for gig economy workers “who don't receive any workplace benefits because they are not classified as 'employees.'"
