$600 stimulus check available for some people in 2022. I have all the details for you, what you need to know, and answering many of the questions that I’ve been receiving here over the last couple days on this check. All right. So now this is a topic and a question that I do want to answer and talk about in a little bit more detail in this topic, simply because over the last couple of days here, I’ve received a lot of questions about this, and I want to break it down for you. Now, I’m not quite sure if this was announced maybe on national news or if there were other people here on Site talking about this or where this came from.
But it’s in the last two days or so, I’ve received a multiple comments and actually a handful of emails asking, hey, is this actually true? Are we getting this check here in 2022? So let me talk you through all the details on this. And by the way, no, this is not the Golden State stimulus check, but rather that is something completely different. Now, please remember this much.
Please don’t be upset with me. I’m here to bring you the information. I’m here to break it all down. And my dedication, like I said, is to bring you honest, accurate, reliable, and transparent information in all of this topics. I can tell you this much.
The vast majority of you in this community will not be eligible for this one time $600 check. Now, this does not include any other checks out there that we may be looking at from Congress. Just this one $600 check that I’m going to be talking about in this video. Is it because you’re low income or living on a fixed income? No, that has nothing to do with it, but rather, this is a highly specified check for a certain group of people that were working over the last two years.
So let me tell you the details on this. So the $600 check is actually being distributed by the USDA under what is called the Farm and Food Workers Relief Grant. All right. Let me tell you a little bit more about this, because you might be wondering, okay, who does that actually include? It is actually available for farm workers and food workers or meat packagers who have been working over the last couple of years here and who have had to come forward and actually have personal expenses in accordance with their job, including personal protective gear, maybe childcare.
That was unexpected unpaid leave and things like this. So again, this is specifically for farm workers and meat packagers. So that’s why I said a minute ago, that’s why I said the vast majority of you in this community are probably not going to be eligible. Now, if you are a farmworker or if you are somebody who is a meat packager, well then let’s continue to talk here because you probably will be eligible for this payment. But like I said, I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of you in the community are probably not falling into this category simply because there’s just not that many people out there that fall into this category.
I mean, maybe a couple of million people across the entire country. It’s just not that many people. So that’s why I said, again, I’m not here to discourage anybody. I’m not here to say you’re not eligible. I’m just simply saying this is a very highly specified check.
So this is available in 2022 if you’re interested, or if you are somebody that falls into that category. And here’s the deal. It sounds like it is being distributed by, like I said, the USDA. So if you are somebody who was or if you still are or over the last two years here from probably early to 2020 until present, if you are or were a farmworker or a meat packager during that time and you had unexpected expenses due to your job during that time, then I would say you’re probably thinking you’re probably eligible for the $600 check. I would highly recommend doing a little bit more research on this.
I’m going to be totally honest with you. I read a few pieces of information about this. I cross reference it. It is a real thing. I actually have heard about this for a very long time now.
It’s been around. I’ve honestly never talked about it simply because I haven’t really felt the need to talk about it because I feel like the group of people that are eligible to receive this is so small that I thought the likelihood of anybody in this community being eligible for it is probably very slim. That’s why I haven’t talked about it. But considering the number of comments that I’ve received about this and like I said, a handful of even specific emails saying, hey, are we getting this check? What’s going on with this?
Are we eligible for this? So I do want to break this down for you and let you know what this is. So if you are one of those workers, or if you were one of those workers over the last two years here, then I’d say, by all means, you’re probably eligible for it. But this is not a widespread $600 check. It is not going to be going out to everybody.
It is not specified for the low income or fixed income anything like that. It is specifically for farm workers and meat packagers over the last couple of years here who had unexpected expenses, like I said, personal protective gear, unexpected child expenses. What else was on the list? There are a small handful of different things on the list. Like I said, unpaid leave, things like this.
So basically, it’s more like a reimbursement program is really what we should be calling it versus a $600 stimulus check. But that is actually how this whole thing is being advertised and how it is actually being sent out. There is they’re calling it a $600 stimulus check when really we should be calling it a $600 reimbursement payment is really what it comes down to. So anyway, like I said, I want to be here for you. I want to bring you the honest, accurate and reliable transparent information every single day.
And that’s what I wanted to do right here with this video. So again, I’m just the messenger. I’m here relaying the information to you. I’m here reporting the news. So again, I’m not the guy who makes this stuff up.
I’m not the guy out there doing all this stuff, but rather I’m doing all the research and I’m breaking it all down for you in these topics. However, as long as we’re talking about stimulus checks and as long as we’re on this topic, if there’s anybody still listening, I can’t imagine that anybody is still here. But if you are, hey, Huge, hats off to you. I really appreciate it. But seriously, let’s just quickly talk about this much.
Even though this payment has been around and this payment is going out right now in 2022, I would have to say there’s actually some encouraging things going on out there right now as it does pertain to other stimulus payments. I’m going to be honest with you this much. So I had that video earlier today talking about my honest opinion on a fourth stimulus check and what it’s going to look like. Here’s what it’s looking like currently as of right now, it looks like Congress is kind of fishing around for any ways that they can kind of lean back and lean on something like a stimulus type of payment, a direct type of payment. So here’s what I’m kind of foreseeing going forward.
And again, this may be a little bit of overlap from what I talked about earlier today and from what we’ve talked about in previous topics. But it’s all kind of coming shape now. It’s all kind of taking shape as far as what Congress is actually discussing right now and what they’re actually trying to do right now pivoting on some type of stimulus payment going forward. Here’s what it’s looking like. We’ve had inflation raging here for what let’s just call it a year now.
I mean, inflation has been going wild for, let’s just say a year. So we’ve known that for a very long time. Congress has done absolutely nothing about the inflation. And it seems like they don’t really I don’t know. Apparently, it doesn’t faze them.
I’m not really sure what’s going on, but apparently, it hasn’t really done much about Congress taking action on additional payments. However, now all of a sudden, in the last maybe what, three weeks now that gas prices have gone really high and they’ve gone essentially four and a half dollars essentially is where the national average was just a few days ago. Now all of a sudden, we have all these members of Congress coming together with all these different proposals, introductions, announcements, and all these other plans that they want to come forward with to help out the low income offset all of these gas prices. So it seems kind of interesting how we’ve had inflation literally raging on every front here for the last year now, but all of a sudden now the gas prices are four and a half dollars or whatever they’re at now, four-point $24 or so is where they’re currently sitting. Now.
They’re coming forward and saying we’ve got to do something about this and we need to send out a direct check. So maybe they finally have a good excuse to finally send out checks. I mean, I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t really care what the excuse is. Congress just send something out.
But maybe this is finally the catalyst or the excuse that they’re using to get the approval and more people in Congress actually behind the idea of direct payments for the low income. Again, like I said, I don’t really care what the excuse is. They could say that bananas cost too much money. Seriously, $0.59 a pound. I don’t really care.
Send us a check. You know what I mean? So if they have to use gas prices as an excuse to get them the money and get the approval of checks for the low income and the fixed income and struggling Americans right now, then I feel like, let’s do it. Let’s get it done. Let’s do this thing already.
So it’s kind of interesting how the whole situation has been going down for over a year now, but yet over the last what is it? Maybe three weeks, two and a half weeks or so, something like this. All of a sudden they’ve all come out of the woodwork here and they’re like, okay, it’s check time, it’s direct payment time, it’s voucher time, things like this. So it’s kind of an interesting transition that we’ve seen here just as of recently. But the simple fact that they’re talking about all this, I would say is kind of pretty encouraging.
So whether they actually come through with anything is another question. We’ve seen it time and time again here over the last what, two years now or probably mostly the last year now where we’ve seen multiple proposals, multiple things being introduced, and then, of course, nothing ever happened. So maybe they’ll actually come through with one of these things now. But as I discussed in that video earlier today, I do think that we have a major backstop coming up here, which is the midterm elections. Trust me, Congress is looking at it.
They know what’s coming just as much as we know what’s coming.
And they’re pretty much trying to figure out anything that they can do to take action to help out people or at least be noticed. And the current rate that they’re moving right now and the current trajectory that they are on, they’re not going to be noticed in a good way anyway when it comes to the midterm elections. So anyway, they have to do something here and they got to get something done quick, I think, which is exactly why they’ve come forward literally in the last two weeks or so now with probably eight or so proposals to send out direct payments or checks or vouchers to the low income. I like it. I think they should continue working with these ideas.
And that’s the thing. Just continue coming up with more ideas, play around with these ideas, and eventually, they will find something that sticks, something that comes forward and sounds good, and they’ll continue moving forward with it. One more thing that’s interesting. I saw this. What was it?
Maybe two or three days ago? I saw this. I had no plans on talking about it. But since I’m here talking, let me just throw this out there. If anybody is still here even listening.
But here’s the deal. I thought this was actually interesting. There was actually an article I read the other day that said, what if we just printed up a bunch of money and sent it out in the form of vouchers and didn’t actually call it money, you know what I mean? So essentially they’re asking, like printing money essentially does lead to more inflation. But yet if we didn’t actually print money, but rather we send it out in this form of essentially like voucher cards or paper vouchers or electronic vouchers.
It’s kind of like technically not money. Right? So you kind of get what I’m saying. That’s kind of what the article is talking about. What if we print it up?
We don’t call it money, but rather we call it a voucher and then send it out to the people. I don’t know, kind of a way to kind of reverse engineer the whole money situation and still get relief out to the people. I don’t know, just another idea that they’re playing around. There’s a lot of different games and different things that they play out there. So anyway, just another piece of information that I came across.
Anyway, I’m here for you in any way that I possibly can be. Please don’t be upset with me. I’m the messenger. I’m literally doing all the research and I break it all down for you in these topics to help you out in any way that I can, as well as make sure that you’re staying updated with everything going on during this very busy time. So again, I know that the $600 check does not apply to virtually anybody, maybe a small handful of people here in the community, but that’s probably about it.
But anyway, we’ll continue doing everything we possibly can to get out to Congress to remind them that the checks are needed, direct payments, raises to benefits, anything else like that. And my dedication to you will be here every single day to break it all down and to help you out in any way that I can.
Stay safe out there and I will catch you again later in the next topic.
See you again soon? Thanks so much
