Tell Gov. Newsom to Veto SB799 so All Workers Can Fairly Access Unemployment Benefits

SB 799 will put new strains on an unemployment system that failed to provide needed benefits to thousands of California workers over the last three years, and is now nearly $20B in debt.  Rather than fixing the unemployment fund so that it will be there for workers when the next recession hits, the legislature caved to powerful special interests and passed SB 799.  But hope remains: Governor Newsom is considering a veto.
