President Biden’s American Rescue Plan
President Joe Biden has issued his “American Rescue Plan” which asks Congress to:
- Provide $130 billion to help schools open and operate safely.
- Expand and extend some of the FFCRA employee leave provisions through September 31, 2021.
- Raise the minimum wage to $15/hour.
- Expand unemployment insurance.
Time will tell whether and how quickly Congress acts on these measures.
