The Freedom to Live: 100% Unemployment Insurance
Contact your legislators and advocate for 100% unemployment insurance!
Many of our leaders push the idea of the American dream, but when a disaster occurs that leaves Americans out of work, there is a risk of falling deeply into debt just to keep their households afloat.
The truth is -- Americans deserve the freedom to live. Whether from a pandemic, an economic recession, business closings or otherwise, employees deserve 100% unemployment insurance that adjusts for cost of living.
Without 100% unemployment insurance, we force Americans into devastating financial situations that might turn what should be a temporary situation into lifelong financial pain. Some leaders say "you should have saved more."
But the reality is this:
- Nearly 80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and wages are not increasing.
- Workers making minimum wage incomes cannot hardly make ends meet normally, even worst, while unemployed.
- On average, American households have $137,063 of debt.
- Drug prices are astronomical and millions still lack basic healthcare coverage.
Americans deserve the best chance at the American dream. Contact your legislator today and advocate for 100% unemployment insurance.
