Our Congress is in a dither about a new federal Covid-19 unemployment top-off to support states which tend to have very minimal resources for large numbers of people out of work.
Democrats have a program. Republicans have a program. President Trump has another program in mind. The current federal top-off has expired and people are stuck with Hawaii’s $263 a week top payment. The federal $600 went bye-bye last week.
Australia is not dithering. And they call their recipients “job seekers” rather than “the unemployed.”
Read this and see how it’s done in places that get with it and help their people rather than retreat into political bickering.
