There are thousands of Americans who may benefit from stimulus payments worth $1,000 as they struggle to keep up with inflation.
These payments would be a one time payment in the state of Wisconsin to county employees.
The payments would be worth $3 million altogether.
The goal of the one time payment is to help workers with the county afford gas and groceries as the cost of living rises rapidly.
The $1,000 payment would go to full time county workers.
Part time workers will see a prorated payment.
Limited term employs will see payments based on the number of hours they’ve worked in the last 6 months.
Over 2,400 workers would see the full or partial payment.
The other goal is to see a boost to the local economy when giving out the payments.
Funding would come from the money sent by the American Rescue Plan.
