Call Now! Senate to Vote Tomorrow on Unemployment
By Eric Mitchell
Tomorrow the Senate will vote on whether to consider reinstating emergency unemployment insurance for the more than 1.7 million unemployed workers who have seen their aid lapse in recent weeks. For many of these jobless individuals, this assistance is their only source of income as they struggle to find work — and feed their families.
Please call (800-826-3688) or email your senators today! Urge them to vote yes on extending unemployment insurance!
This proposal extends unemployment insurance through March, is retroactive to Dec. 28 (when long-term aid expired), and it is completely paid for. The Senate is expected to vote tomorrow on a motion to advance the bill. We believe they are just a couple of votes shy!
Take two minutes right now and call or email your senators and urge them to VOTE YES on extending unemployment insurance.
Eric Mitchell is Bread for the World's director of government relations.
