    Newsy is looking to speak with full-time and/or part-time gig workers who have relied on the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance during the pandemic.

    Let’s face it people, August job reports showed an improvement in recovery. 8.4% unemployment, last month it was 10.2%. I truly believe with these improvements, congress will throw away the stimulus plan all together. What do you think? I accepted it, it’s not going to happen. No stimulus checks...

    I was wondering about the fate of the $1200 stimulus check because it’s not in the executive orders Trump signed.

    The $600 a week is over, as we have passed the July 25 date. My question is this: With Congress and the Senate negotiating a new amount for the FPUC enhanced weekly benefit, do you think that when they do agree with something and pass it into law that it will be retroactive? So let me give you...

    Is every PUA applicant in NJ receiving only the minimum $231/week (aside from the $600)? I am, but would typically be making much more weekly. Does anyone know if unemployment plans on adjusting/backdating our amounts later on? I assumed what we would get would be based on 1099-K/MISC...

    The Democrats want to extend the $600 a week on top of unemployment Until January 2021. So, it is possible that the 600/week can go on for the remainder of 2020.

I know the states are all varied in their "phase" openings and also air traffic has certainly not come back = fewer rides even in a partial re-opening. I have been looking for another job and may get an offer at Lowes...
