Bold action is needed at the national level as we work to end the COVID19 pandemic. From the funding that is needed for the national vaccination effort to the importance of support for working families and a $15 an hour minimum wage, political leaders must act on behalf of the American people.
The American Rescue Plan would address many of the demands of members of SEIU District 1199. This plan includes direct payments of $1,400 for those who are eligible, provides a temporary boost in unemployment benefits, extends a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures through September, and grants funding for the national vaccination effort. The American Rescue Plan would also increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour, send emergency funding to states, schools, and local governments, and support contact tracing.
Write to your members of the U.S. Congress to show your support for this important rescue plan. Together, we will speak out and make our voices heard.
