Congressional Relief Needs to Focus on Workers and Families
We are calling on our elected leaders in Congress to protect the immediate health and financial wellbeing of workers and their families, especially those on the frontlines, and strengthen the social safety net to allow for families and the economy to recover as quickly as possible by taking the following steps to fill gaps left by previous pandemic relief packages:
- Ensure Paid Sick Days and Quality Jobs for All
- Strengthen the Economy for the Long-term by Investing in Workforce Training, Higher Education, and Adult Education
- Coordinate and Fund a Comprehensive Caregiving System
- Protect Vulnerable Populations
- Guard Against Rollbacks
