Trump adviser Kudlow says administration is looking ‘very carefully’ at a ‘return-to-work bonus’
Trump administration signals interest in Republican Sen. Rob Portman’s proposal of providing $450 a week for individuals returning to work
The line above came Tuesday from top White House economist Larry Kudlow, as he talked with Fox Newsabout the Trump administration’s interest in Sen. Rob Portman’s proposal of providing $450 a week for individuals returning to work.
“Sen. Portman has a good idea. He understands incentives and disincentives,” Kudlow said, adding that the CARES Act’s $600 supplemental unemployment benefit may have been needed initially, but it’s now a “major disincentive to go back to work.”
