#SaveTheArts: a testimony from an anonymous Broadway musician (#19)

“I am so grateful as a musical performer to have been able to provide for my family’s home, food and education for over 35 years. The additional $600 a week in federal pandemic unemployment compensation had allowed me to continue doing this and also to pay my taxes and other bills. With no quick return to work in sight for the music and theater industry, I am increasingly troubled by our financial future. I have tried, but was unable to get a home equity loan, due to the fact I am unemployed. If I no longer can receive the extra $600 per week, I will be faced with very difficult choices and a grim economic outlook.” – Broadway musician
