The Labor Department reported more than 1.3 million new applications for unemployment were filed last week, and as of the first week of January, almost 16 million people were still receiving some form of government jobless benefits.

Biden's second order restores collective bargaining rights to federal government employees, and instructs agencies to do the preliminary work to allow him to issue a new order requiring federal contractors to pay their workers a minimum of $15 an hour and provide them with paid emergency leave.

US President Joe Biden signs executive orders as part of the Covid-19 response in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, DC, on Thursday, Jan. 21, 2021. However, Yao doubted Kenney's calls for action would be heard by Trudeau.
