Help for the Unemployed

If no agreement is reached in negotiations taking place on Capitol Hill, more than 9 million people will lose federal jobless aid that averages about $320 a week, and that typically serves as their only source of income.

The end of jobless aid is approaching at an especially perilous time. Job growth slowed sharply in November, and the resurgence of viral cases appears to be out of control across the country.

The Philadelphia Unemployment Project is organizing to support a rescue package.  Unbelievably, "our government" appears willing to bail out the banks, insurance companies, airlines, and cruise ships, but not the unemployed.  The government can only get away with this because we aren't organized.  Please join with PUP and help spread the word.

Now is the time to help the unemployed!
