Almost two million out-of-work Americans will lose their federal unemployment insurance in January -- and millions more later in 2012 -- if Congress does not renew the benefits before they expire Dec. 31.
A new report by the National Employment Law Project1 shows that if we don't act soon, 40,500 people in TN will lose their unemployment insurance and slip into poverty.
Millions are struggling to find work in an economy wrecked by Wall Street. Will you help by asking Congress to extend unemployment benefits?
Nearly seven million Americans are currently surviving on modest unemployment insurance benefits. Over three million people are one unemployment insurance check away from falling into poverty.
If we cut the last thread keeping these families in the middle class, it won’t just hurt them. It will worsen the housing crisis because more people will be unable to afford their mortgages. It will worsen the retail economy and force small businesses to close because even more American families will be unable to buy food or clothes for their kids or pay the heating bill.
If Congress doesn't act right now, 1.8 million workers will be cut off in the month of January alone – Merry Christmas America, you get another recession in your stocking.
Don't let it happen. Please help by telling Congress to extend unemployment benefits now. America's job crisis isn't going away, and the last thing we need are more people in poverty.
