senate Bill S. 1845

Extending- Emergency Unemployment Benefits

Argument in favor

Long-term unemployment is prevalent across all demographic groups — this bill would save 3.1 million people from losing their benefits and create thousands of jobs in the next year.

Argument opposed

The longer that someone is out of a job, the less likely that they are to find employment. Long-term unemployment hurts the economy, and fosters higher unemployment rates overall.
