How will the latest Coronavirus relief proposals impact you?
The different Coronavirus relief bills can be confusing. Most people don't have the time to go through hundreds of pages. But this is a vital issue that could leave many people homeless and unemployed. How can the details be shared so people can demand a fair bill before it is too late?
Infographics make it easier for more people to understand the essence of large amounts of data. We used Prezi, a free app, to create an infographic that contrasts Democratic and Republican Coronavirus relief proposals.
Background: Differing Democratic and Republican Coronavirus relief proposals
"The GOP opted against including new funding for state and local governments and hazard pay for essential front-line workers ... the federal government would provide a $200-per-week benefit for each jobless worker — down from the $600 it is currently providing... For city, county and state leaders, the GOP plan offers only minimal relief. It contains no new dollars, despite months of pleas from local government leaders who sought as much as $1 trillion in new federal aid." - Washington Post
