When Congress expanded UI this year, it had one effect that many overlooked: It made America’s jobless benefits system more fair. But Republicans let this lifeline lapse, & now Black workers stand to hurt the most.

Fact: Enhanced unemployment insurance helped Americans make ends meet AND kept our economy afloat.But that doesn’t matter to Republicans. They’d rather waste time with last minute proposals & policies that leave vulnerable communities behind.

The President’s wishful thinking about just “going away” isn’t going to solve this crisis. Instead, as more jobs disappear for good, Congress must continue to provide emergency relief that keep struggling Americans - and our economy - afloat.

$600/week unemployment = $15/hr for a 40 hour work week. Families have to put food on the table and thinks $15 an hour is too generous. Shameful

Republicans dragged their feet for >11 weeks on protecting the relief policies that help to mitigate the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on Black&Latino workers. Their failure threatens to exacerbate economic inequality & derail our recovery

The Trump Admin’s disdain for science is endangering American lives & futures. Congress has begun to restore research & development funding, but the White House needs to step up as a partner rather than sabotage the work of scientists and experts.

This is the I’ve been worried about. We do not have a package because Senate Rs were waiting to see if the numbers were good, even though the numbers have been good BECAUSE policymakers passed fiscal relief.

There’s no other way to put this: Republicans’ efforts to cut UI is bad policy. If they’re serious about getting people back to work, they need to pay closer attention to this study that confirms more generous UI helps workers find better jobs.
