Coalition on Human Needs: The Impact of Sequestration 4/10-4/17

Sequestration is breaking the backs of hard working american citizens. job morale is down, due to fear of job furloughs. College loans are over due!!! recent grads are under payed, just received a tax increase and the mortgage is under Water$$$$$. Any takers?

These are some of the cuts we’ve learned about this past week:  Unemployed workers will recieve 12.8% less compensation in Massachusetts, program for the blind and visually impaired lays off almost half of staff in Ohio, senior center to close in Virginia, Head Start to end program 3.5 weeks early for over 250 children in Michigan, and Missouri agency to drastically reduce meal delivery to seniors.

Read about these and more in this week’s summary:  http://www.chn.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/sequester-impact-apr-10-17.pdf
Look at all our weekly summaries, plus 50-state tables and fact sheets, here.
