Jobless workers need support from Congress! While the Senate barges ahead with a Supreme Court nomination, the same senators are refusing to pass desperately needed coronavirus relief. Legislation is especially needed to extend the $600 weekly unemployment supplement that hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians need in order to survive.
Tell Senators Tillis and Burr not to abandon the nearly 500,000 working North Carolinians who have lost work due to COVID-19.
Families across the state are growing desperate. Our Senators must not wait any longer to extend these critical supports to North Carolina to ensure a strong recovery. Each week they fail to act North Carolina loses $360 million in income that supports local businesses, and ensures rent gets paid and food is on the table.
Easy Action: Sign the NC Justice Center’s petition to Senators Tillis and Burr: https://ncjustice.salsalabs.org/extendui/index.html
Extra Credit: Write or call them directly, and demand that they take action now.
