As frontline workers, we are working every day and are risking our health to make sure our business & customers are well taken care of. Where is our bonus?
Why do we continue to work? It's because we have bills to pay, family to feed, and to make sure we have a roof over our heads.

My Proposal: 
1) Frontline Workers(Full-Time, Part-Time, Self-Employed, Gig-Workers) should be rewarded 400.00 weekly if those whos on EDD get 300.00 weekly.
- Should have company-provided Paid Vacation up to 1-2 weeks after this covid is over with.
- Make the first 10,200 not taxables with a full tax credit rebate
- All upcoming stimulus checks should be rewarded to those who are working plus those who are on SSI.
- Should receive 300.00 Snap monthly to help cover our food expenses instead of having to waste our hard earn money

2) Those who are Unemployed and is collecting EDD;
- Change the 300.00 weekly bonus to match their previous pay but cap the amount earns with the bonus to 600.00/weekly.
**So if John Doe was getting paid 500.00 a week, Edd should adjust the Weekly bonus to match it, Not give John Doe more**
** Example: John Doe filed for Unemployment, John Doe was getting paid 600.00/weekly, Right now John Doe is receiving 300.00 from EDD, EDD should add 300.00 Bonus for the income he lost.
** Example 2 - With max 600 capped threshold
John Doe filed for Unemployment, John Doe was getting paid 800.00/weekly, Right now John Doe is receiving 300.00 from EDD, EDD should add a 300.00 Bonus making John Doe hitting the max threshold/cap amount.

- Weekly Job Search should be active for all States.
- Weekly fraud-check system put in place.

- EDD system need to be more reasonable to match the current situation
Breakdown:
** Month 1 = Full EDD State - Benefits w/ up to 300.00
** Month 2-4 = Full EDD State - benefits w/ up to 200.00 bonus
** IF covid is still in effect then, up to 60% of previous income covered weekly.
** Auto expired when covid is over.

- Extend EDD IF the unemployed are actively looking for work 1 month at a time with no bonuses since the covid situation seem to be getting better.
- Employers whos reaching out to someone for a job offer and are being declined without a valid reason should be reported to the proper department to deny EDD benefits who refuse the job offer

My Reasoning:
Some that are on EDD are getting paid more to stay home and are not motivated to return to work. If the Unemployed is receiving the bonus weekly then, the frontline workers should too. Just because we are currently working and have income flowing, doesn't mean we shouldn't receive a bonus. Thanks to Front Line Workers, we are the ones to be thanked because we are the reason the business is opening up. We are the reason why the economy is picking back up. WE ARE THE Reason. 

Our EDD system is broken and we will need to fix it!
