Biden said the economic crisis in the US is only getting worse
The American leader signed two new decrees aimed at mitigating the effects of the pandemic on US residents.
The economic crisis in the United States caused by the coronavirus pandemic is only deepening, so drastic and urgent measures are needed, said United States President Joe Biden.
вЂњYesterday we learned that another 900,000 Americans have applied for unemployment benefits. We need to act, we need to act now. We need to act with courage and determination,вЂќ the president said.
According to him, the state should help citizens in these conditions, not only because it is a вЂњmoral dutyвЂќ, but also because it is вЂњan urgent economic necessity.вЂќ
As part of the assistance, the American leader signed two new decrees aimed at mitigating the effects of the pandemic on US residents. One of them concerns emergency measures for working families affected by the crisis. The second is the minimum wage for federal employees and contractors. It should be $15 per hour. They should also be granted вЂњpaid emergency leaveвЂќ.
Recall that the United States is introducing mandatory quarantine for all persons arriving in the United States from abroad by air. The restrictions are related to the coronavirus pandemic, said American leader Joe Biden.
