Some against extending the $600 PUA are Stacia Familo-Hopek, Brewery Owner in Georgia | Mitch McConnell, USA Senate | Rachel Greszler, Heritage Foundation | Twelve Federal Reserve District Pollees | Larry Kudlow | Republican Party As A Whole
Historically, whites will never vote for anything they feel will benefit a large amount of Black people. This is why it is really only whites who want to end the $600 pandemic unemployment assistance. Are these whites racist?
Nikole Hannah-Jones breaks down the significance of racism, slavery and how it now continues to affect all government policies, health care, social norms and much more including those not wanting weekly assistance for those who are barely surviving right now during COVID-19.
The majority (99%) of those who use the excuse of “they are making more money than when they were working” are all white. ALL WHITE. Let’s take Stacia Familo-Hopek, Brewery Owner in Avondale Estates, Georgia. She seems to be tone-deaf in not realizing most people in Georgia who work in restaurants as kitchen help, also work other jobs to make enough money to just pay rent. Stacia is tone-deaf to the life experiencing of others and only concerned with her security. Listen to Stacia speaking against the federal unemployment assistance, and others — pro and con — on the topic.
Mitch McConnell promised House Republicans that the $600 federal unemployment benefits enacted earlier this spring “will not be in the next bill.” McConnell contends that the additional $600 is keeping people from going back to or getting a job.
Rachel Greszler Research Fellow in Economics, Budget and Entitlements of the Heritage Foundation believes if workers can receive more money from unemployment benefits than by working, there’s a clear incentive to remain unemployed.
Twelve Federal Reserve District Pollees – As reported in Barron’s,
“Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for the rest of his life. Give him an extra $600 a week not to fish, he’ll stay home and open cans of tuna—especially if he can avoid contracting coronavirus and his wife needs help with the children.
That’s one of the key nuggets in the newly released Beige Book from the Federal Reserve, which collects subjective assessments of the local economies in the 12 Fed districts for the June 9-10 meeting of the policy-setting Open Market Committee.
Even though the unemployment rate is expected to register over 20% for May in the jobs report the Bureau of Labor Statistics will release June 5, employers reported difficulty in hiring during the severe economic contraction resulting from the coronavirus shutdown.”
