President-elect Biden, who will be inaugurated as the nation’s 45th President on Wednesday, last night outlined another new COVID relief package which he will ask Congress to approve within hours of taking his oath of office. The proposal he is submitting will include $2000 stimulus checks for qualified Americans as well as automatic extensions of unemployment premium benefits, scheduled to expire in March. The Biden plan will also impose additional paid family leave on employers during the coronavirus pandemic as well as significant funding for the production and distribution of additional COVID vaccines. Further, he will be advocating for an additional $400 weekly premium above and beyond current unemployment benefits and in his address last night, specifically called for a $15 per hour minimum wage. All told, it would appear the first round of the Biden stimulus plan will come in with a price tag of $1.9 trillion with more to come over the next several months.
