Two Million Americans Are Losing Their UnEmployment Benefits this month
Update: Several hundreds of thousands lost their benefits starting today. 🙁
Republicans and conservative Democrats said they are willing to consider extending unemployment benefits if it does not add to the trillion plus deficit.
Incredible! In order to receive unemployment you have to have worked.
“People who get unemployment put it right back into the economy — groceries, their landlord, local merchants. They are not putting them into savings,” said George Wentworth, a senior staff attorney with the National Employment Law Project, which advocates for workers’ rights. (NYPost)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to these Americans huh?
How do you feel about the government not extending these benefits?
