NEW ORLEANS, LA/ 29 July 20/ Unemployed workers plan to protest Thursday to keep benefits.

SIGACT: Workers are protesting having to return to work as they are currently earning more from unemployment and new federal programs. 

RECOMMENDATION: Continue to monitor local media reports of protest actions involving various causes. Do not rely on a federal program to supplement your income. The election in Nov is preventing significant progress from being made inside Congress.
