College Students aged 18-24 who have been claimed as a dependent will not receive stimulus checks

This really sucks. I’m a college student doing a dual degree program. that god laid off. I’m ineligible for unemployment since I’m a student. I’ve filed my taxes the past 2 years but was claimed as a dependent since I don’t make enough as independent. (Less than 30k).

I’ve tried to apply for help desk jobs, remote IT jobs, even simply warehouse jobs at this point. It looks like I won’t be getting any assistance from the government. All my undergrad classes are pass/fail. My professors for my masters classes said they are cutting down the workload a lot.

So I’m a 23 year old student with 3+ years of work experience, I’m ineligible for government aid, and companies refuse to hire me since I’m still classified as a student...
