(Sacramento, CA) – In response to the millions of unemployed Californians struggling to get ahold of California’s Employment Development Department (EDD), Assembly Member Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) joined Assembly Member David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and more than fifty other legislators to urge dramatic reforms to the state’s failing EDD system.

“Thousands of Californians are sick and tired of waiting for their unemployment checks,” said Assembly Member Santiago. “We can no longer accept the fact that, in the world’s fifth largest economy, individuals and families are going months without receiving any income during a pandemic. People are jobless, without savings, and nearing desperation. We must do better, which is why we are demanding that California’s EDD system do more to meet the needs of Californians.”

Dear Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative McCarthy:

We respectfully request that you extend the expiration date of the additional $600 per week allocated to individuals receiving unemployment insurance to January 31, 2021. This extra $600 per week in addition to regular unemployment benefits is desperately needed given the recession our country is facing due to COVID-19.
