Biden: Minority Small Biz Will Be Prioritized For Recovery Assistance

Over the weekend, Biden delivered remarks announcing his Labor, Commerce and SBA nominations while also running down a laundry list of liberals proposals he will pursue.

Those include a $15 an hour minimum wage, “tens of billions of dollars” in handouts for schools, $2,000 COVID “relief” checks, paid family leave.”

Biden also vowed that his administration will prioritize economic aid for small businesses based on race and gender, saying that “Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American-owned small businesses” will be prioritized for recover help.

He said:

“our focus will be on the small businesses on Main Street that aren’t wealthy and well-connected and that are facing real economic hardships through no fault of their own.
Our priority will be on Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American-owned small businesses, and women-owned businesses, finally having equal access to the resources needed to reopen and rebuild.
We will make a concerted effort to help small businesses in low-income communities, in big cities, small towns, and rural communities that have faced systemic barriers to relief.
Think of the mom and pop owner with a couple of employees who can’t just pick up a phone and call a banker, or who doesn’t have lawyers and accountants to help them through the complicated rules to know if they even qualify, or who simply didn’t know there was even relief available in the first place.”

Why not help all small businesses by demanding the economy open back up.
