The full effects of the Coronavirus pandemic have yet to be felt, but many SEIU 721 members are already being impacted.
The federal government has provided hundreds of billions in relief for corporations, but has done next to nothing for states and cities and counties.
Early reports peg a City of Los Angeles revenue shortfall totaling $295 million for the remaining fiscal year, and the one ending in 2021. The County of Los Angeles fares even worse — we’re facing a cumulative revenue shortfall of $3.6 billion from now through the fiscal year ending in June 2021. Inland region and Tri-Counties region and regions across California are expected to also report a shortfall in the coming weeks.
This page will be updated regularly to inform SEIU 721 members of major developments and policy changes.
