CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO DONALD TRUMP AND SENATOR PAT TOOMEY: EXTEND UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS!

Over 2.5 million PA workers have been forced to apply for unemployment since March 15. Tens of thousands still have not gotten any money from the state to this day!

However, a $600/weekly supplement to UC was part of the federal stimulus and it has helped families make it through the coronavirus pandemic.

President Trump and most Republicans want the $600 to end on July 31, despite over 15% unemployment in PA and the fact that Black unemployment continues to climb.  Most experts expect mass unemployment well past the end of 2020.  Democrats have passed a bill to keep the $600 for another 6 months. 

We need these benefits to keep us going until the economy comes back!  Come out to support the $600 supplement, demand the state pay out benefits to workers who are still waiting and deal with rising minority unemployment!
