This virus has changed our routine, in professional, emotional and financial conditions. Many people saw their salaries being reduced and their jobs being taken from them. Recently a historic step happened and Congress has approved funding for state and city workers. The American Rescue Plan provides $350 billion which will bring back jobs, restore public services, help small businesses, and make an enormous impact on the lives and communities across the country. Iā€™m very grateful because this money will help my community with its support of clean and safe streets, timely public transportation, clean water, public education and health.
