Redistribute the Stimulus – Take the Pledge!

The $2 trillion dollar stimulus package promised direct payments of $1,200 to tax-paying adults with an income of less than $75,000. But millions of workers who have been working and paying taxes in this country for years will be completely excluded due to immigration status.

As of March 21st, all nail salons in the NY metro area were officially closed by the Governor’s order. Our membership, entirely immigrant women, a quarter of whom are the sole providers for their households, were left suddenly cut off from any income in one of the most expensive cities in the world, and most won’t qualify for any federal assistance and remain ineligible for unemployment insurance.

We are asking for people who have maintained their salaries during this uncertain time, and will be receiving a stimulus check, to pledge to donate all or part of their check to workers who are being intentionally excluded from relief, due to a xenophobic administration that has made clear it holds no regard for immigrant lives and contributions.
