Extra 600 stimulus should extend for those just starting unemployment

US government should extend the extra 600 coronavirus stimulus unemployment benefits based on length of unemployment claim.

Why is this important?

While others were hit early on by the coronavirus pandemic other fields of work had a more delayed effect and some workers and only now filing for unemployment and receiving benefits just as the extra 600 is ending. For those who have only just started a claim and have no idea when their jobs will come back (entertainment, post production, etc) benefits should be available to them for as long as they were for others at the beginning of the pandemic
