DANIEL M started this petition to Kay Ivey and

    As many of you know, Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama announced on May 10, 2021 that she will be ending participation in All Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation Programs including but not limited to PUA, PEUC, FPUC, MEUC and the $300 federal unemployment boost on June 19, 2021. This will end unemployment eligibility to independent contractors, gig-workers, and sole-proprietors and many more citizens who are no longer eligible for regular unemployment benefits who are not able to work during these troublesome times. Ending these programs will cause a lot of families to lose their homes, source of income, food, etc... Not everyone on unemployment is just being lazy. For most of us the federal programs mentioned above have been our lifeline during the Covid-19 pandemic when the jobs we worked for have completely shut down or dramatically reduced hours. This is no longer about politics, we are talking about families, children, and the elderly that will be on the verge of homelessness if these programs are ending while still under a pandemic as well as the Alabama state of emergency (Until July 6,2021). 

So we the people of the great state of Alabama are asking Gov. Kay Ivey to reconsider her actions to end these federal programs short of the federal end date of September 6, 2021. 

We are also asking President Joe Biden to step in and take action against these Governors in any way he legally can. EXECUTIVE ORDER. 

 Thank You.
