Local 5 Demands Extension of Unemployment Benefits (Community Matters)

Additional COVID Restrictions Makes it Worse for them. The host for this show is Jay Fidell. The guest is Eric Gill.

Eric Gill of Local 5 helps us understand the plight of the hotel workers. Since Labor Day, Local 5 and community members sent hundreds of emails and made dozens of phone calls to Sen. Ron Kouchi, Rep. Scott Saiki, and Gov. David Ige to redirect funding to extend unemployment. Workers called to demand the needed safety nets for unemployed workers as the state battles its highest number of active COVID cases and hospitalizations since the pandemic.
