A staggering 54-million Americans have applied for unemployment benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Reports reveal that although initial applications have been approved, issues are now arising where applications for extensions do not get the green light.

The reason is simple: Every state is facing economic disparity in some way right now due to COVID-19 and its subsequent Great Pause, and what this means for potentially millions of Americans is that they will have to seek out income in other ways in order to purchase the basics and keep up with bill payments until employment is secured.

It also protected Americans from eviction. Here’s an article explaining what this means to American citizens.
