Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.

Yuuup my severance is up at the end of July and I was just over the threshold for the last stimulus check sooo it's looking likely that I'll lose my job to COVID but see little to no government help.

Very very concerned! The extra $600 helped me cover all the rent and bills. I hope they continue until the job situation gets a bit better.

Yes. Just got laid off last week and I’m more than a little concerned.

In the same boat as you. 🙏

I keep reading that they’ll likely extend the extra UE money just might not be 600. The amount might also depend on how bad the UE rate is in your state.

How long before obnoxious consultants take over this thread with how UE people don’t deserve this aid because “they’re just sitting on their asses at home being lazy and going to covid parties.”

I heard last night that it might be $100/wk.

I’m hoping the recent spike in cases and unemployment filings will Help them realize the need to extend the benefit. Or if it’s not $600 maybe to cap it at what you were making pre pandemic because I know I’m in the boat of making more with the $600 than I was at my salaried graphic design job.

Yes. I am freaking about the loss of the $525/week. I bet Little T will swoop in and get it going again. It will be positioned as a gesture so we will like him.

It also makes ppl like me who had no intention of looking want to look just because. Curious what others are experiencing/feeling?
