The Safety Net 4 All Coalition encourages you to email Gov. Gavin Newsom and ask that he sign Assembly Bill 2847, the Excluded Workers Pilot Program, into law. AB 2847 will provide unemployment benefits to workers who are ineligible to receive unemployment insurance solely due to their immigration status.
