Congressional Relief Needs to Focus on Workers and Families
Congress needs to keep working on relief packages for working women and their families, especially people who have been left out of other packages. The next package must:
- Protect the immediate health and financial wellbeing of workers and their families, especially those on the frontlines;
- Provide financial assistance reaching workers and small businesses directly and expediently—rather than going to big corporations; and
- Strengthen the social safety net to allow for families and the economy to recover as quickly as possible.
