Rachel Korberg is the Executive Director at the Families and Workers Fund, and Naomi Walker is the Director of the Economic Analysis and Research Network (EARN) at the Economic Policy Institute. They join me on this podcast to discuss the economic recovery from the pandemic and the need for dramatic unemployment insurance reform. 

We focus on the previously overlooked value of unemployment insurance with a mission to bring it into the 21st Century.

  • Making Build Back Better a reality will help us recover from the impact of COVID-19 as well as historic inequities in pay, job opportunities, and access to social services.
  • This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a public investment in new jobs and strengthen the unemployment insurance systems in all states.
  • Innovative and updated unemployment insurance policies tested during COVID-19 for previously non-covered workers need to be continued and expanded.
  • Essential investments in updated technology should allow for a worker-friendly interface.
