Urge Congress to Extend Supplemental Unemployment Insurance
As Congress returns to consider COVID-19 economic relief, workers, jobseekers, and advocates are joining together for a week of action to urge our elected officials to extend the Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC) which is set to expire at the end of July!
The PUC is a $600 unemployment supplement which is a lifeline for the millions of Americans who are unemployed as a result of the pandemic. This funding helps families—especially women and people of color—to pay for basic necessities and emergency expenses not covered by standard unemployment insurance payments. We need to tell Congress to EXTEND THE PUC UNTIL THE ECONOMIC CRISIS HAS STABILIZED.
ACT NOW and demand that your senators and representative extend the supplemental $600/week Pandemic Unemployment Compensation until the nation’s unemployment crisis is under control.
