So Long, Farewell to the Unemployment Bonus

Sept. 6 was an important day for our country—the day we said goodbye to the job-killing federal unemployment bonus. 

The bonus, which originally appeared last year as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), was intended to be temporary assistance during the worst of the pandemic for people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own. 

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
