Press Conference & Workers Caravan with Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez with Common Ground Florida, New Florida Majority, South Florida AFL-CIO
July 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm UTC+0
Workers Caravan with Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez – press conference and caravan to Senator Rick Scott’s office calling on federal officials to extend unemployment in partnership with Common Ground Florida, New Florida Majority, South Florida AFL-CIO.
Grateful to the men and women who bravely shared their struggles to receive the benefits due them.
Thank you @donna_shalala@josejavierjjr@cindypolofl103@electjavier@repasencio for calling on Governor @rondesantisfl to fix Florida’s unemployment system which has caused needless harm and heartache to working families during a public health crisis.
We call on Senators @flsenrickscott and @marcorubiofla to support the extension of the CARES Act due to run out on July 31 even as our state becomes the global epicenter and their constituents struggle to meet their basic needs. Your colleague @donna_shalala vowed to stay in DC until it’s approved, I would take her at her word and make that happen.
Please call Senator Scott at (202) 224-5274 to demand that he take action at this crucial time to extend the federal CARES Act unemployment benefits.
