May Day Action: Unemployment Benefits for Immigrants!
Yet again, the WA State Legislature failed to pass unemployment for undocumented workers. This year, our bill went further than it ever has before, but died in the budget committee due to the cost being “too high.” Legislators need to fund and expand unemployment benefits for undocumented workers in the next legislative session! Workers cannot be “essential” yet still deportable. We must tell our legislators that in WA, ALL workers should have equitable access to social safety for themselves and their families.
