A Comprehensive Proposal To Save California’s Small Businesses
In order to confront the challenges faced by the almost 5 million small businesses in California and the economic devastation that can result from COVID-19, a bold comprehensive plan is needed by California’s elected leaders. Most small businesses in CA did not have well established banking relationships to get in the queue for relief, or enough professional staff to quickly complete the complex applications. This means that many of the state’s smallest businesses and those owned by people of color were left out of accessing relief. Small businesses need the full backing of the State of California if they are to survive this crisis.
