Sign the Petition to Extend Unemployment Insurance

Every second, more than one person loses his or her emergency unemployment benefits. This didn't have to happen, but deficit hypocrites in the U.S. Senate who are fighting for $700 billion in tax cuts for millionaires think maintaining emergency unemployment is “too expensive.” Because of their delays, 2 million job seekers are expected to lose emergency benefits by the end of the year.

Please add your name to our petition to Congress. It says:

"Letting emergency unemployment benefits expire will hurt our fragile economy just as we're struggling to recover. With five job hunters for every one opening, long-term unemployed workers need uninterrupted help to keep food on the table. I urge you to renew the federal unemployment insurance programs immediately!"
