Every day that Republicans in Congress refuse to restore unemployment insurance benefits for workers, 38,710 jobless men and women lose their benefits—more than one every second. Since Nov. 30, more than 1 million workers have lost their unemployment insurance—and that number will climb to 2 million by the end of December.
While the jobless are seeing their holidays shattered, Republicans are holding all legislation hostage until they win an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest.
Take part in the AFL-CIO Online Day of Solidarity and let jobless workers know you’re on their side.
