“Get a Job!” Is Trending On Twitter As COVID Benefits Run Out Today For Millions Who Made More Money Staying Home


“Get a Job” went viral on Twitter today after a number of programs in the 2020 CARES Act, the Covid stimulus bill, expired yesterday. Almost 10 million people aid were collecting Covid related stimulus money in the middle of July. Those who were eligible for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) won’t qualify for further unemployment benefits from the government.

Small businesses need workers to survive, but can’t always afford to pay their workers $300 every week.
