Some minority business owners are really really suffering from both the riots and covert nineteen pandemic so Steve Let's go to the phones talk to the People Ida everybody You know doing this time that we're all coping with on so many different ways. We decided to take some calls and just hear from some of our listeners. We don't have a all. We don't have a topic. Topic is just what's going on in his world to down me. It's all the same thing you know a moment ago. It was covert nineteen, which was the conversation and now I think we've gotten onto something that's. Equally as important in starting to have a more resounding effect or more people than I even thought it would, which is could be a good thing for the cause, so we're going to go to some of our listeners on the phone Let's go to our first. Call is Steve Harvey. Who is this? Is My spine. I'm calling from Atlanta Georgia Hi Myra. Hey, listen. You're a business owner here. How how is this affecting you? And what would you like to say I? Would they Jesus be Bob wire fence right now because this is a lot. I have been through an economic downturn. I've been through the recession. I've been through two three Republican administrations as business owner and I can tell you I've never seen anything like this. This is crippling now. I know for a lot of businesses. Before we got the people out in the streets, pandemic has a close so many businesses. How is Your Business closed I? Don't you don't? Don't have to give the name of what what type of business do you have and is it closed? And what do you foresee happening? Wish? She thought well I can tell you. This is my tenth year in business in this brand. I've owned Salon for twenty years. Over Twenty Years Since Nineteen Ninety, nine I'm moved to Atlanta. Nights and ninety eight and when I pull you. and. We felt in have always felt like. The streets were paved with gold. This is not a political city. This is not a city like New York Chicago, Detroit L. A. The cost of living with debt for entrepreneurs. So if you could see in, believe it, you can have it that reality television Atlanta, because I've been on reality TV and I know what that looks like, but this is real business people who if you set your mind to something and you had a drink could accomplish it, and it was not stagnant based on. On politics and the cost of living allowed it to be that, but this pandemic was nothing. Anybody could have prepared for in any way shape or form this the not like the housing crisis. It's not like the great recession where you could blame people who have forecast or over leveraged. This was something that was beyond our control and I'm in the beauty business where we can't. We can't say six feet away. You have to touch people and my salons and businesses have been closed since March twenty third. We opened three weeks ago. And to fifteen percent of the revenue that we normally do during this time of the year, which is our busiest time of the year, which is prom season, which is tax season, which is Mother's Day? Every major holiday before June is off big time of the season and our business was at zero. And it was if I hadn't been the type of business that I am. My employees wouldn't have I. See a dime because my employees are actual employees. They're not subcontractors their employees, so if it weren't for the federal government stepping in and giving the extra six hundred dollars on top of the basic unemployment that they get, they would have been homeless, and this is disheartening. It's sad. It's troubling and all of this. It's too much. Too much while. I understand that and now you know we we. We put in for you I mean we're praying for everybody to get through. This is still going to be some challenges even with the stimulus packages, and and even when it gets back to a sense of normality, still gonNa be a bit it just is. It's going to be a bit. It's GonNa. Take a while to get back to normal and I don't know what the norm is. GonNa look like either I don't know if it's going to be. Anything like it before I can play that. There would be what we had before. And you know what I'm okay. I mean things change. You know life has changed. Maybe this will cause some other things to be looked at everything so hanging there.
