“The extra $600 a week in federal pandemic unemployment compensation has allowed me to stay afloat and not fall behind during the Covid-19 crisis. Without the extra money, I will not be able to pay all of my monthly costs including rent, groceries, healthcare costs, student loans, etc. As the economy restarts and people go back to work, entertainment workers will still be unable to work and will have to endure this financial hardship longer than most. The $600 extra a week will help me keep up with living costs in NYC until it is safe for us to start working again.”
