‘I live shift to shift.’

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

Millions of Americans have lost their jobs during this crisis

Too many Americans are struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus outbreak—and Trump’s chaos and inaction have made it much worse.

Despite multiple warnings, Trump failed to act quickly to slow the spread of coronavirus. His inaction contributed to the U.S. having the most cases and deaths of any country in the world and made the economic crisis far worse.

17.3 million people have filed for unemployment since the beginning of March. Sarah May, a bartender from Michigan who was laid off during this crisis, shared her story with us. She was denied unemployment because she made $171.25 too little to qualify.

It didn’t have to be like this. Trump’s chaos has a price.
