Working people in Florida are watching with anticipation what Congress will do regarding the extension of unemployment benefits. Many people are depending on unemployment benefits to survive.

"I hope Congress votes to extend unemployment. I need that money to buy food and pay my rent. I have been unable to find work in the retail industry and I have 22 years of experience working in stores," said Cynthia Parades.

"I believe working people need some relief. We are seeing too much wage and income inequality," said Larry Benson.

"I hope Congress extends unemployment benefits. Too many people are still struggling in this economy," said Kathy Holman.
