Texas companies tell workers to come back to work immediately after Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan

AUSTIN, Texas — Democrats just saved the jobs of Americans across the country with today’s final passage of President Biden’s 1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. The bill, which will be signed by the President this week, includes an extension for the airline Payroll Support Program.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines quickly sent a letter to all previously furloughed employees saying to come back thanks to Democratic action.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued a statement:

“Democrats are delivering on their promises to bring swift and bold action to help everyday Americans who need relief from the effects of this pandemic. Today is a great day for Texans across the state who have suffered the effects of ineffective governance under Republican leadership. Help is on the way.”
