These six hundred dollars a week meant to help Americans lost jobs due to the pandemics economic full out more than five million jobs would be lost. We get some perspective from Eric Ladas and Brassica where fifteen hundred jobs could be lost. Heidi Sheer Holtz with the Economic Policy Institute says the benefit has helped millions pay for food rent and other essentials she says cutting off assistance will also make racial inequality worse because black and brown communities are suffering more from this pandemic, both physically and economically as a result of historic and continuing systemic racism workers of color who file for unemployment are much more likely to have their claims rejected according to analysis by the. Bipartisan policy, center white workers have received seventy eight percent of all employment dollars compared with twenty percent for black and Latino workers. Critics of extending benefits. Believe it's a disincentive to work and note some workers get more unemployment than they did on the job meantime CNN reporting swift bipartisan agreement of a new corona virus stimulus package seems unlikely at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Gin on their opposing positions on Sunday. Democratic leaders in the White House held a round of productive meetings on Saturday but reported that they remain far apart on an agreement Pelosi Mnuchin along with Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said they expected me today to resume discussions CNN quotes Steven Mnuchin says saying we obviously need bipartisan support to get any deal done.

"Service Joy newscaster fly the twenty third twenty twenty I'm Mike Clifford. President Donald Trump says he will surge federal law enforcement officers to Chicago and other American cities despite resistance from local leaders. As. He adopts a hardline law and order mandate ahead of the November election that from CNN. They report in making the move. Trump is waiting further into an effort to portray Democrats as weak on crime and unable to protect the citizens of places where they are in charge. Meantime all Ross Brown reports for Peon had trump and attorney general William Bar announced Wednesday that thirty five federal agents will be deployed to Albuquerque. Tell combat crime despite no requests for such help at a news conference on Wednesday. Trump's at agents will also be sent to cities in the Midwest Aclu of New Mexico Executive Director Peter Simonsen is disturbed by the president's. President's possible motive, I think we have to be really clear why trump is doing this, and it's not to protect public safety as he claims, it's to provoke scenes of conflict and create the impression that the public needs him to restore law and order. Meanwhile, US Senator Martin. Heinrich called for the resignation of Bernallio County Sheriff Manual Gonzales. Who attended the president's? President's press conference claiming Gonzales had invited the agents who he called the president stormtroopers to our Kirke Gonzalez has aggravated local officials for his opposition to body cameras in a separate statement. Governor Michelle Luhan Grisham said if the trump administration seriously wants to assist local law enforcement with community policing activities, state would welcome the conversation, but added that agents said to escalate tension. Tension in New Mexico communities would be flatly unacceptable silences. His protests in Albuquerque or George Floyd killing have largely quieted down and doesn't see the need for federal agents. There's no coordination with local agencies. The city of Albuquerque is just kind of a sitting duck waiting to see what this all means and I think we can rest assured it really is politically. Americans have been counting on their postal workers to deliver needed items during the pandemic. Now the postal service is asking people to call their Congress Person Today President of Charlotte area local three, five seven of the American Postal Workers Union. Anthony Wilson says many people mistakenly believe the postal service is run using tax dollars. Wilson says that's not the case. Noting the agency operates just like any other business and raises money by selling. Selling stamps, we also have been serving in taking care of people doing the pandemic put added burden wasn't enough budget, and these be replenished like any other company. That postal service is projecting nearly thirteen billion dollars in losses this year as a result of low mail volume, and if the trend continues the agency projects, it could run out of money by the fall of twenty twenty one.

These mandates was shutdown orders from back in the spring. But. He says a mask rule should be looked at differently really wearing a mask the way not to shut down I, think we have to shift that mental model. The thinking about the mask is the key to opening backup. Minnesota has loosened some business restrictions, but Jacob says embracing masks can help pave the way to a full reopening of the stating quicker fashion. Researchers say achieving eighty percent compliance can lead to a dramatic decline in the spread of covid nineteen.

He says that law provided one hundred sixty seven million dollars for projects across the nation. This new bill offers even more support this. This has the ability to be a real game changer.
