Tell your senators: Vote YES on the American Rescue Plan

 

Call your senators and tell them we’ve waited long enough for COVID-19 relief. They must vote YES on the American Rescue Plan.

 

The American Rescue Plan funds vaccinations and testing so we can contain COVID-19 and get back to normal. It also delivers direct, immediate relief to our families and communities who have been struggling through this pandemic over the past year.

This is a historic rescue package. It provides benefits and programs America’s families need:

 

  • Overdue support for our states, cities and towns so we can preserve critical public services.

 

  • More money for COVID-19 testing, treatment and protective supplies.

 

  • Funding to shore up multiemployer pension plans, protecting earned retirement benefits for millions of hard-working Americans.

 

  • An 85 percent COBRA subsidy for unemployed workers who lost health care (the AFL-CIO is advocating for 100 percent).

 

  • Renter and homeowner assistance.

 

  • School funding for safe reopenings or remote learning.

 

  • Paid sick and family and medical leave for more than 14 weeks.

 

  • An increase in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

 

More than 28 million Americans have contracted COVID-19 and over 500,000 have died already.

 

Senators have had enough time. They’ve had enough chances.

 

Call your senators and tell them: Vote YES and pass the American Rescue Plan now.

 

In Solidarity,

 

Team AFL-CIO
