Millions of people in the United States are staring at financial ruin as their federal unemployment support runs out. Republicans believe the added $600/week was too much and discourages people from looking for work. Democrats see the funds as important to preventing the spread of COVID-19 by allowing the recipients to shelter at home, while also propping up the economy during a downturn. Many are also threatened with eviction if there is no extension of the moratorium. More desperate people looking for work during a pandemic induced economic downturn will not be good for anyone. Increased homelessness, crime, COVID-19 spread, and the economy plunging over a cliff all at the same time is a horrific possibility. Research this issue and contact your representatives to address the issue of COVID-19 unemployment. There is a lot at stake for all of us.
