Georgia small businesses call on policymakers to support Main Street
The COVID-19 pandemic has left Georgia small businesses reeling, with many of us unable to re-open or re-hire employees. For months, we have barely scraped by paying rent on buildings we could not occupy, supporting employees even though we didn’t know when our revenue might return and counting on our communities’ support when we should have been able to count on our government’s. We don’t have the resources that large corporations do to bounce back from financial hardship so quickly. Small businesses are essential to Georgia’s economy, but if we are to recover from the loss of profits and business we faced during the stay at home order, we need your help. We urge congress to act now to provide these important policy solutions to support Georgia’s small businesses.
