Drew Miller started this petition to Senator Mitch McConnell and

To all GOP leaders! 

We are signing this petition today in hopes that you will pass the extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits. 

We know that you think that it's keeping people from looking for work, that is not the case. 

Almost every single one of us that has been on unemployment since late March have jobs waiting for us. We have jobs that want us back and jobs we want to go back to. With the surge in Coronavirus cases we cannot go back to work.

Some of us are immunocompromised and it's dangerous for us to go back to work. We're not being lazy, we're not just collecting government money to do nothing. We're waiting patiently for the disease to run its course or a vaccine is made so it's safe for us to go back. Most of us are in the food service industry and we can't go back until business picks up and by getting rid of the extra $600 it will be even longer until we can go back or even if our jobs will still be there. 

By getting rid of the extra money you are putting our lives at risk. Without it we will lose our homes, food, and other necessities. You'll be putting more of us at risk. More people will die.

Without it we won't be able to spend locally and keep the economy alive. That $600 is helping the economy stay afloat along with the people receiving it. 

So please pass legislation to keep the $600 unemployment. We need it to survive. We need it for the country to survive. Without it we will all suffer.

Thank you.
