Day Three – Economic Relief
On the final day of the business week Biden focused on setting up different committees that will make it easier for U.S. citizens to receive many different kinds of federal aid. This includes food assistance, veteran’s debt, unemployment insurance for people who refuse to work during COVID-19 due to health concerns, and general stimulus payments. He also instructed all agencies to see where inside of their jurisdiction they would be able to create economic relief. Finally, he requested that the department of labor begin work on recommendations that would move the minimum wage of all federal employees to $15 an hour.
