Employment experts warn that when the extra $600 in weekly federal unemployment benefits expires at the end of July – in two weeks – it will be “total economic devastation.”
The extra $600 a week in unemployment helped unemployed Americans pay bills, put food on the table and stay in their homes.
The executive director of the National Employment Law Project says without that extra $600, 30 million unemployed workers will lose 50 to 70% of their income overnight.
And now that some states are rolling back there reopening it is forcing some workers back on unemployment.
Also Congress is unlikely to pass an extension of the extra unemployment benefits by July 31.
That means 23 million Americans could be evicted from their homes by the end of September.
