Tell the Senate: Get to Work
The coronavirus pandemic has brought an unprecedented challenge to musicians—leading to an overnight loss of work for many with no end in sight. In May, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the HEROES Act, which would extend expanded unemployment benefits including including the extra $600 per week in benefits through January 2021. But the Senate has still not voted on this critical piece of legislation.
- Extending the additional $600 per week in unemployment benefits.
- Preserving healthcare for families who have lost access to their employee-based insurance by passing a 100% COBRA premium subsidy.
- Safeguarding renters and homeowners from evictions and foreclosures.
- Protecting multiemployer pension plans.
- Increasing arts funding.
