Message from Congressman Ted Budd:

I believe that our number one priority should be to get as many Americans back into the workforce as quickly as possible.

I’m extremely concerned with the backwards incentive that has been created through enhanced federal unemployment benefits. We have a record number of job openings while the workforce remains small. This tells me that federal policy is incentivizing folks to stay out of the workforce.

We can reverse that incentive through my Back to Work Bonus Act. It replaces Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) benefits with back to work bonuses to incentivize American workers to return to work and aid in the economic recovery. The cost of the bonuses would be taken from already appropriated FPUC funding, creating a net-cost savings.
 
All of the good intentions and government spending in the world cannot replace the productivity and dignity of a job.

Congress must do more to get our country back to work. If would like to receive more information about this issue, you can sign up below.

Thank you and God Bless.

-- Ted
