Today, Rep. Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement in response to the US economy losing 20.5 million jobs in April, putting unemployment at 14.7% nationwide.

“These numbers aren’t just statistics – these are the lives and livelihoods of our fellow Americans. This is more alarming, heartbreaking evidence that the coronavirus pandemic is causing financial hardships for too many families across the nation. Congress must go big in our next relief package to put more money into people’s pockets,” said Rep. Frankel.
