The U.S. leader signed two new executive orders aimed at mitigating the effects of the pandemic on U.S. residents.
The economic crisis in the United States caused by the pandemic coronavirus infection is only deepening, so decisive and urgent measures are necessary, said the President of the United States, Joe Biden. TASS writes this on Friday, January 22.
“We learned yesterday that 900,000 more Americans have applied for unemployment benefits. We need to act, we need to act right now. We have to act boldly and decisively,” the president said.
He said the government has to help citizens under these conditions, not only because it is a “moral obligation” but also because it is an “urgent economic necessity”.
As part of the relief effort, the U.S. leader signed two new executive orders aimed at mitigating the effects of the pandemic on U.S. residents. One relates to emergency relief measures for working families affected by the crisis. The second is a minimum wage for federal employees and contractors. It should be $15 an hour. They must also be provided with “paid emergency leave”.
Recall that the United States imposes a mandatory quarantine on all persons arriving in the United States from abroad by air. The restrictions are related to the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. leader Joe Biden said
