DETROIT (WXYZ) — Flight attendants will rally outside of Senator Debbie Stabenow's Detroit office to demand action on COVID-`19 relief.

The union says without passage of a relief package, hundreds of thousands of airline workers across the country are in jeopardy of losing their jobs.

The Payroll Support Program, that passed as part of the CARES Act, was a workers first package that protected flight attendants, pilots, and airline workers across the country, expires on September 30.

Stabenow has been supportive of an extension of that program through March of 2021.
