Time to Extend Unemployment Benefits

unemploymentTake action:   Please urge Congress to restore emergency Unemployment Insurance that offers immediate relief to more than 2 million workers and their families. Please take a moment to tell your Senators that you support restoring emergency Unemployment Insurance to millions of Americans that find themselves out of work. 

On March 13, a bipartisan group of Senators filed a bill to retroactively restore the emergency Unemployment Insurance that expired on December 28, 2013.  The proposed five-month extension does not include harmful amendments that we have been fighting against, such as restrictions on the Child Tax Credit for immigrant families or on Unemployment Insurance for people who have received disability benefits. You may read here more about the legislation.     Please invite your “circle of friends, family, co-workers” to join in this advocacy.
