Tens of thousands of Californians have been laid-off in recent months due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Before Covid-19, there were nearly half a million jobs in various industries. But in the most recent months, there have been so many layoffs; the hardest hit were the employees of non-essential businesses. The pandemic has decimated and has caused economic devastation in the California workforce, leaving so many people unemployed. But passionate advocates have helped bring awareness and support to employees left in the wake of the pandemic.
California has taken many actions to protect workers who are dealing with the economic fallout of Covid-19, including expanding unemployment benefits and providing subsidies for low-income residents to afford private healthcare plans through “Covered California.” Sadly, because of the increase of more than 10,000 unemployment claims daily, there is a backlog, making it difficult for the many laid-off employees to receive their benefits.
