Congressman Kim Advocates for a Safe Return to
Work for Workers Impacted by Coronavirus Crisis
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-03) pressed for bipartisan support for policies that would make it easier for Americans to return to work safely and responsibly as states reopen from Coronavirus-related shutdowns, during a briefing on the topic by the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.
“Every single one of us here today wants to see our economy stronger and wants to see Americans going back to work as soon as possible,” said Congressman Kim. “When it comes to our issues of how we get people back to work as quickly as possible, it becomes a question of how we do this safely and responsibly. If that is where the debate is, let us talk about that and let talk about the public health tools needed to get us to that place.”

Today’s briefing comes as an additional 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment last week, bringing the three month total to more than 46 million Americans who have been forced out of work due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
