Texas Senator Ted Cruz has forwarded some advice for the nearly 8.9 million Americans currently undergoing the loss of the now expired pandemic unemployment benefits!
“ Um, get a job?” was Ted’s response to reports that unemployed residents have been left suffering with little to no options as they endure a continuous financial crisis.
Um, get a job?
There are millions of vacancies, and small businesses across the Nation are desperate for workers. https://t.co/0ejI45Ja6I

“ There are millions of vacancies, and small businesses across the Nation are desperate for workers,” Ted’s controversial tweet continues.
The politician’s comments were met with immediate backlash as social media users spoke on the current minimum wage and Ted’s previous opposition of forwarding a $15 minimum wage increase for employees.
However on the other hand numerous users agreed with Ted in saying that many people rode the unemployment wave out for way too long and need to get a job to work like everyone else.
According to The Insider, Three federal unemployment-aid programs end on Labor Day. The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation program, and a program that provided people with $300 a week in Federal Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation were amongst ultimately came to an end.
