Coronavirus: An urgent message – call congress now!
FROM: D. Taylor, President of UNITE HERE
Yesterday, I sent a letter calling for Congress and President Donald Trump to ensure that workers and their families are the top priority in any legislative package to help the U.S. economy recover from COVID-19.
Right now, the Senate is debating an emergency bailout for big corporations. They need to hear from us that millions of workers—not just billionaire companies—need cash in their pockets RIGHT NOW.
Click here to be connected with the Capitol Switchboard to contact your member of Congress. You can also call 1-808-201-0028 directly to be connected.
When you call, tell Congress that any bailout package must:
*Keep unemployment insurance in place.
*Extend workers’ health insurance coverage.
*Require companies to pay emergency sick-pay to workers affected by the virus.
*Guarantee family and medical leave.
*Maintain funding for nutrition programs like food stamps and WIC.
*Provide emergency rent and mortgage relief for workers who have been laid-off.
Please call today and share: http://unitehere.org/call-congress. It is imperative that Congress acts now to bail out workers, not just American business.
