It’s Not Over -> Tell the Senate: Extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program
August 1, 2020
MEC Government Affairs Committee
Keep up the pressure! Phone calls are extremely important and have proven to be highly effective. Call both your state Senators daily to make sure they support a clean extension of the Payroll Support Program through March 31, 2021. Make your calls today and every day! Voicemails are not enough! Keep calling until you reach a person in your Senator’s office and urge your family and friends to call. Our jobs and thousands of aviation jobs are at risk!
Senate - 1-888-848-4824 (You will need to call this number twice to be patched through to each of your Senators.) Sample Script:
"Hello, I am a constituent calling to ask my Senator to help save my job as an essential worker. Take legislative action in July to extend CARES Act Payroll Support Program for aviation workers to avoid massive job loss on October 1, 2020. Keep us connected to our jobs, paychecks, & healthcare".
