The US now has over 22 million unemployed citizens. Many people are eligible for a stimulus check worth $1,200 with millions of Americans already using theirs to buy food after being laid off from their jobs

There are backlogs in several states with Florida being the slowest to process stimulus checks. California was reportedly paying their own money to give checks to immigrants in need of money to buy food.

Some of the websites below are not working with unprecedented demand on the servers. Bars and restaurants remain closed with industry workers losing their jobs. Oils prices have also plummeted too with workers in that industry also suffering.
