Resources for Furloughed Workers
(This request came from my friend Victorio Milian - a fellow HR practitioner.)
With the U.S. government shutdown, it's apparent that furloughed employees are in dire straights. I'm looking for ways in which I can help those being affected.
Does anyone know of organizations supporting furloughed workers? I'm not looking to collect donations. Rather, I'm looking to put together a list, or contribute to an existing one, in order to amplify its reach and potential impact.
Here are a few resources that I'm aware of at this time:
- From NY State Senator Alessandra Biaggi: https://twitter.com/SenatorBiaggi/status/1087560813743878144
- GoFundMe: http://www.cbs8.com/story/39827768/gofundme-launches-shutdown-fundraiser-to-help-federal-workers?
People need help. If you have leads to share I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day!
