This Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020 is absolutely unacceptable. Throwing the kitchen sink in this Act & including issues that have nothing to do with covid-19 relief measures are inappropriate and

A2: There is some good news here: Gig & part-time workers are covered by #PaidSickLeave included in the March 18 bill.

They also have access to UI benefits from the $2.2T #StimulusBill passed last week and through work-sharing programs at the state level. #JobEquityCOVID 1/
Making these changes more expansive & permanent is necessary so all workers can weather this crisis. We should build in triggers so supports don’t stop until the economy recovers, and they turn back on if crisis returns… #JobEquityCOVID #RecessionReady 2/
Workers will need to file an unemployment claim in the state where they worked.

Many offices will be closed due to social distancing guidelines, but laid off workers can apply online or by phone.
Here’s how:… #JobEquityCOVID /n

No matter how great a "deal" a company is offering right now, if they're advertising it, they're profiting from it. And that means they are putting the people who make their business possible at risk, knowingly, for money.

The responsible (non-essential) companies are shutting down for the benefit of their customers and staff.

The rest are trying to stick it out until your stimulus check shows up.

There are loans and grants and bailouts available to them. They do not need your money right now.

They just want it.

BRACE YOURSELF. I have been a labor economist for a very long time and have never seen anything like this. Here are last week’s initial unemployment insurance (UI) claims. (1/n)
Initial UI claims jumped from 211,000 three weeks ago to 282,000 two weeks ago to 3.3 *million* last week. That is nearly a 1500% increase in two weeks. (2/n)
Is the shock-factor of last week’s UI numbers being driven by seasonal adjustments? Nope. Here is the not-seasonally adjusted series. (3/n)

Make no mistake, working people and our allies took last week’s corporate grab bag and made substantial improvements. We are thankful to @SenSchumer and @SpeakerPelosi for their intense effort on behalf of working people. #stimulusbill
This deal includes a number of things America’s workers must have immediately, including an expansion of the unemployment insurance program, increased funding for schools, hospitals and state and local governments and relief for the airline industry that protects worker rights.
Given the urgency of the situation, Congress should pass this bill and @realDonaldTrump should sign it today.

However, the package does not address critical aspects of the coronavirus crisis–issues that threaten the lives of working people and the integrity of our democracy.

Trump opened briefing/circus boasting about 2.2T stimulus designed to carry US thru 3 mths of social distancing.

He ended propaganda lap justifying early return to work saying: “We have business owners with businesses that are just sitting there.” 1/ #coronavirus #stimulusbill
Businesses WILL sit there and their owners will receive CASH to keep paying their workers AND overhead for 3 months! So, why is Trump risking OUR ENTIRE NATION to open up businesses in 5 days? 2/ #coronavirus #stimulusbill @JoyAnnReid @maddow @Lawrence @chrislhayes @KirstenPowers
March 2020: Senate is voting on bill to give 2.2 Trillion to businesses, workers and hospitals.

In 5 days, Trump ruins the gains made over last two weeks by prematurely ending quarantine.

March 2021: US has 2.2 MILLION fewer consumers b/c they died. #recession #coronavirus 3/3

How a single $1200 check helps America's most vulnerable in a pandemic, explained:
This pandemic is revealing a lot about the government's priorities.

On top of that, Canadians don't have to worry about losing health insurance due to loss of employment. Shout out to universal healthcare.

- Trump is going to prison
- It’s still only 11am
