Support the Paycheck Guarantee Act
Date: Indivisible Olympia and Washington Indivisible Network are asking us to join a statewide day of action on TODAY to support the Paycheck Guarantee Act.
Call our Senators to support this bill (Congresswoman Schrier is a cosponsor). Then post about your call on social media:
• The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) seemed like an important initial step to stabilize businesses, but it has proven to be inadequate to meet the enormous economic challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. The Paycheck Guarantee Act, a proposal now being considered in the House, addresses many of the shortcomings of the PPP. Among other things, it would streamline federal payments to affected businesses and their employees through direct grants, rather than loans. This approach seems like a much more efficient and effective way to aid small businesses and preserve incomes. I urge you to do all you can to support inclusion of the Paycheck Guarantee Act in any upcoming COVID-19 relief legislation.
• After you’ve called your Senator, tweet & post about your call using the hashtags #PeoplesAgenda and #WaIndivisible.
