Today’s Jobs report doesn’t tell the whole story.

Today's jobs report doesn't tell the whole story.

 

 

In this crisis, middle class entertainment workers were the first to lose work, and will be among the last to return.

There is tremendous suffering and pain on the ground right now, and there is much more work to be done.

We cannot allow lawmakers to weaponize the Jobs numbers to make the case against a subsequent COVID relief package.

Enhanced unemployment has been virtually the only lifeline for the workers who bring us the entertainment we love, but the payments end in less than a month.

Make no mistake, if congress does not extend Enhanced Unemployment, families and economies across this nation will face economic devastation.

Together, let's remind lawmakers of the severity of this crisis and demand further action.
