Gov. Newsom: Take Emergency Action to Relieve Youth & Minority Unemployment.

To stop the creation of a new "lost generation" of workers, an emergency California can avoid, please do everything in your power to bring economic relief and reform to aid unemployed and under-employed California workers, including the use of emergency measures, before the end of July.

Why is this important?

Unemployment levels for young Americans and minority workers are at levels unseen since the Great Depression. Furthermore, the economy is not rebounding fast enough to put millions of formerly-employed workers back to work before federal unemployment benefits end on July 31. Nevertheless, a necessary relief bill will not be enacted in Washington by July or even August.

California already has the largest number of homeless workers in the U.S. Failure to provide economic relief will balloon this human disaster into a catastrophe.
