MNA RN Nellie Munn Advocates for Unemployment Insurance Extension

13 Dec

 

On Thursday, December 8, MNA Nurse Nellie Munn spoke at an event at Congressman Erik Paulsen’s office, asking him to support an extension of Unemployment Insurance.

Without Congressional action, unemployment benefits will run out for 28,000 Minnesotans and a total of 2 million Americans on December 31. Cutting the lifeline of Unemployment Insurance will throw families into crisis, affecting their health as much as their checkbook.

We’re encouraged that Congressman Paulsen’s staff said he’d vote to extend UI. If you are a constituent in his district (most of suburban Hennepin County), please call his office and make sure he keeps to his word! Reach Rep. Paulsen at 952-405-8510.
