Print and Digital Ads Call on Sinema to Endorse Survivor’s Checks, Extended Unemployment Insurance, and Increased Minimum Wage
Today, MoveOn launches new print and digital ads in the Arizona Daily Star and on Tuscon.com demanding that Senator Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) stand up for Arizonans amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With a state unemployment rate of 7.5%, 262,000 Arizonans are behind on rent and nearly 700,000 are struggling to keep food on the table.
Sinema’s first priority should be to support her constituents, who need survivorship checks, expanded unemployment insurance, and an increase in the minimum wage to $ 15. The people of Arizona put her in office to protect their livelihoods. and their families, not hamper the COVID bill of President Biden and the Democrats that has the bipartisan support of 78% of the public.
“COVID has devastated Arizonans’ health and livelihoods, and as President Biden has said, the danger is doing too little, not too much,” he said. Rahna epting, CEO of MoveOn Civic Action. “Arizona residents need relief checks, expanded unemployment insurance, and an increase in the minimum wage, all of which are directly related to fighting this pandemic. These programs are even more crucial for people of color, women, youth, immigrants, and LGBTQIA + communities that have weathered the disparate impacts of COVID and the recession. Members of Arizona MoveOn are counting on Senator Sinema to fight for them and bring real relief to the state of the Grand Canyon. “
