not just in 2020, but in 2018 and 2019, well before the current pandemic. While most Americans will get a one-time economic impact payment of $1,200, the individuals eligible for this tax break stand to gain an average tax break of $1.6 million.

crucial roles to help Americans get the food and supplies they need. Most of these workers make less than $15 an hour and perform their duties without adequate equipment to protect themselves. These same workers often have insufficient healthcare benefits
and work in dangerous circumstances without hazard pay.
