From the Coalition on Human Needs
By April 5, more than 2 million unemployed workers will have lost jobless benefits if Congress doesn’t act. The Senate can change that this week. And then, there’s the House of Representatives.
The Problem: The Senate needs to turn one vote around to restore Emergency Unemployment Compensation.The House needs to take a vote on it.
The Solution: Contact your Senators and tell them to vote to restore Emergency Unemployment Compensation now. Contact your Representative and tell him/her to urge Speaker John Boehner to bring the Senate bill to a floor vote to restore Unemployment Compensation.
