Mayor Peduto Joins Other Mayors Across The U.S. In Pushing For Payments For Low-Income People

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is joining a network of other mayors across the United States pushing for guaranteed payments for low-income individuals suffering from the pandemic.

According to this group of mayors, near 40% of Americans do not have enough money to cover a $400 emergency.

They also note that the median white worker makes nearly 28% more than the median black worker.

The idea of the direct payments is to provide an "income floor."
