In The News

An article in the Long Island Advocate highlighted the stories of excluded workers and advocates, at SEPA Mujer’s news conference, who are encouraging New York State to pass the Unemployment Bridge program which would provide unemployment benefits to undocumented immigrants, freelance and cash workers, and those who have been recently incarcerated.

The article referenced a recent report from the Immigration Research Initiative:

“A report from the Immigration Research Initiative last Thursday estimated that 750,000 workers across New York would be eligible for the new unemployment program, including 180,000 self-employed and freelance workers.”
