Tell Congress: Extend Emergency Unemployment Benefits Through 2014

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

We call on Congress to extend the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program through 2014, and prevent 1.3 million people from losing their benefits at the end of this year.
There are currently 27,802 signatures. NEW goal - We need 30,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Unless Congress acts, the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program ends between Christmas and New Years for 1.3 million jobless Americans. Unemployment benefits will be cut from as much as 73 weeks to 26 weeks after December 28. EUC should continue until the economy picks up and jobs are available again (There are still 3 jobless for every job in the US).
