What airlines, other industries got in $900B relief bill

"Or next guest. Points this out. Tax payers are putting up almost five hundred thousand dollars for each laid off airline worker to have three months of employment while cooks and waiters. Get nothing in other words. Airlines are outranking restaurants in relief. Money don't oh sarah. Bloomberg opinion columnist joins us now. Joe did thought go into this or was it a simple matter of the airline lobby being more powerful than the restaurant lobby well. They're barely is a restaurant lobby that start there whereas airlines have been Staffed up you might want say for for many decades because airlines have had dealings with the federal government from many decades between the faa and you know various various airline regulations. I wanna sell for so so you know you start there. I mean restaurants are just just diffused organization. They're not large companies. And even you know restaurant chains. I mean putting mcdonald's aside You know in a city. Like new york danny meyer. Who is probably the best known restaurant tour in the city. You know he has maybe twenty restaurants and do that just doesn't give him the clout that the airline industry has even though they employ more people and even though there are people are really really hurting. So joe this is a column by comparing and contrasting the airline industry with the restaurant business so the restaurants. Obviously it is a you know. It's it's industry. Lots of independent operators historically has not been pushed to organize better this industry that is so important to many people's daily lives. Well is a restaurant lobby of sorts. the national restaurant association. But it doesn't seem to have a lot of clout For whatever reason after the pandemic After the first round of of a stimulus the ppp program There are a bunch of independent restaurant. Tours tried to start an organization called the independent restaurant coalition and they had a lot of success. They got they. Have they have a bill that would cost one hundred twenty billion dollars which is a lot of money and the idea. Is that instead of trying to do it like ppp. You know the restaurant industry would be get money. Based on last year's revenues pre pre pandemic revenues and and believe it or not. The bill passed the house in october. Actually by quite quite a large margin it had more than fifty co sponsored in. The senate bipartisan but in the senate is run by one guy and his name is mitch mcconnell and he was more interested in that three martini lunch tax break which he claims. We'll help restaurants but no one in the restaurant. Industry seems to think it will make much difference at least not in a short term. I mean at the very least if people start flying again. They will need to go out for runs at their destination. But it's gonna be a long time before people really start flying in numbers again joe particularly since the vaccines aren't out there yet. So you know what is the thinking behind. This was going to thank the. There's two things going on here. the first is that that airlines You know they will be bringing people back to work. It's easier to give money to a large company that can do one thing that can bring fifteen thousand people back to work. They can bring twenty thousand people back to work. It's easier whereas You know giving money to restaurants is kind of a messy your proposition. Because they're all so. Many of them are so small. And it'll be you know there's that but the thing you have to remember about restaurants it's not just a place to eat. Every major city in the united states restaurants are at the core of vibrancy and their downtown area. And you know if you're going to build a new suburban area it's going to be built in large part around restaurants. I mean they play a hugely important role in the life of cities and so ignoring restaurants is really a dan damaging america's cities and. That's what breaks my heart about this more than anything else. So what's the i guess. The fate of the us restaurant. I if you will. I mean these. I'm going to call them. Individually owned mama. Pop if you will. But you know the the non chain owned restaurants. The numbers were seeing in not just new york city but a kind of across the country are staggering in terms of how many are likely have gone out of business are likely to go out of business. How bad is it going to get a hundred and ten thousand estimated to have gone out of business in the us. That's a lot you walked. I mean look. I'm a new yorker so i walked on the streets of new york city and you just see them closed up everywhere You know some of them will survive. There's certainly will. There are restaurants that will survive. There's there's no question about that. Some of them have learned to shift to take out Even even at the very high end i get. I get a notice from Daniel baalu who's one of the great chefs in america. Saying you know. Get get our christmas dinner for you. Know seventy five dollars will drop it off at your house that kind of thing so you know. Some restaurants will survive. But i think what you're going to see is that when the pandemic and and people can start going to restaurants again You'll see a lot fewer restaurants and it will take. I think generation for restaurants to build up to where they were just because there'll be so little capital left in the industry

What airlines, other industries got in $900B relief bill

"Is help for the airline industry in the pandemic release build again hasn't been signed yet by the president but is out there. Our next guest points this out, taxpayers are putting up almost $500,000 for each laid off airline worker to have three months of employment while cooks and waiters get nothing. In other words, airlines air outranking restaurants in relief money. Jonah Sarah Bloomberg opinion columnist joins us Now Joe did thought, go into this. Or was it a simple matter of the airline lobby being more powerful than the restaurant lobby? Well, they're barely is a restaurant lobby. Let's start there. Whereas airlines have been, um Taft up. You might want to say for many decades because airlines have had dealings with the federal government from that many decades between the FAA and, um You know, various various airline regulations and so on and so forth. So so you know you start there. I mean, restaurants are just is just defused. Organization. They're not large companies and even you know, restaurant chains. I mean, putting McDonald's aside, you know, in a city like New York, you know Danny Meyer. It was probably the best known restaurant tour in the city. You know, he has maybe 20 restaurants. And that just doesn't give them the clout that the airline industry has, even though they employ more people. And even though their people are really, really hurting, So, so this is a searing column by you kind of comparing and contrasting the airline industry with the restaurant business. So the restaurant's obviously it is a you know it, Z. It's a diffuse industry. Lots of independent operators historically has had not been a push to kind of organize better this industry that it's so important to many people's daily lives. Where there is a restaurant lobby of sorts, the National Restaurant Association, but it doesn't seem to have a lot of clout for whatever reason, um after the pandemic. After the first round of stimulus, the P P p program, there are a bunch of independent restaurant towards tried to start an organization called the Independent Restaurant Coalition. And they had a lot of success. They got they have they have a bill that would cost $120 billion, which is a lot of money, And the idea is that instead of trying to do it, like the P P p You know, the restaurant industry would get money based on last year's revenues, pre pre pandemic revenues. And believe it or not. The bill passed the house in October. Actually, by quite a quite a large margin, it had more than 50. Sponsors in the Senate, bipartisan But, you know The Senate is run by one guy, and his name is Mitch McConnell, and he was more interested in that three martini martini lunch tax break with he claims will help restaurants. But no one in the restaurant industry seems to think it'll make much difference, at least not in the short term. I mean, at the very least of people start flying again, they will need to go out restaurants at their destination. But it's really a long time before people really start flying in numbers again, Joe, particularly since you know the vaccines are into out there yet so You know what is the thinking behind this? It was thinking there's there's two things. There's two things going on here. Um, uh, The first is that airlines Um You know they will be bringing people back to work. It's easier to give money to a large company that could do one thing that can bring 15,000 people back to work thing. Bring 20,000 people back to work. It's easier, whereas you know, giving money to restaurants is that is a kind of a messier proposition because they're all so many of them and they're so small and it will be. You know, there's that, But the thing you have to remember about restaurants, it's not just a place to eat. Every major city in the United States. Restaurants are at the core. Of their vibrancy and their downtown area. And you know, if you're gonna build a new suburban area, it's going to be built in large part around restaurants. They player hugely important role. In the life of cities. And so ignoring restaurant is really a damn damaging America's cities, and that's what breaks my heart about this more than anything else. So, Joe. I mean, what's the guess? The fate of the U. S restaurant, if you will. I mean, you know these, I'm gonna call them individually owned Mama Pop if you will, but you know that the non chain owned Restaurants. The numbers were seeing and not just New York City, but a kind of across the country are staggering In terms of Harmony or likely have gone out of business are likely to go out of business. How bad is it? Gonna get right? 110,000 are estimated to have gone out of business in the U. S. That's a lot you walked. I mean, and look, I'm a New Yorker. So I walked down the streets in New York City, and you just see them closed up everywhere. Um, you know, some of them will survive. You know, there certainly were. There are restaurants. It'll survive. There's no question about that. Some of them have learned to shift to take out. Even even if the very high end I get I get notices from Daniel Balu, who is one of the great chefs in America. You know, get get our Christmas dinner for $75. We'll drop it off at your house. That kind of thing. So the you know, some restaurant restaurants will survive. But I think what you're gonna see Is that when the pandemic ends, and people can start going to restaurants again, um you'll see a lot fewer restaurants and it will take. I think a generation for restaurants to build up to where they were. This because they'll be so little capital left in the industry. Right? And and you know, as we've been saying all week if you've seen your restaurant closed down if you've had to lay off stuff If you've worked for years to build up a successful restaurant, do you really have the fortitude? Never mind the capital. Actually startle that whole process again. So, Joe, I was listening to Carl Drega Donna speaking with the guys a little earlier on today, and he was talking about his better stake a scattergun approach than a rifle approach. And I'm paraphrasing. But in a sense, this is a rifle approach. Right? As you said, you could re employ a lot of people. If you target just even one airline, where is targeting restaurants is more scattered on. It's definitely a lot more difficult to put together. Absolutely that 100% And I think that the P p p p p experience. Excuse me. The P T P experience has not Been all that satisfactory for Congress. I mean, so many so many, uh, cos got left left out. Somebody felt like you know, larger companies got money that didn't really need it and so on and so forth. So it's really hard to put together a program that would work. I mean, I do think that the program the restaurant industry put together would have worked if had if it had been tried, But of course, we'll never know because it didn't get tried.

Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020

"Regardless of a vaccine for so many americans. This is emergency time. We're so close. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and yet people are going to the hospital now. Businesses are getting closed now and without financial relief a lot. More people will lose their jobs some getting ready to spend their first winter in homeless shelters but this week you're also seeing some hope in washington that a deal can get done for the first time in months it seems. Lawmakers are close to passing another round of support. Compromise is within reach behind the scenes. There was clearly some bipartisan cooperation. Happening for example many democrats wanted direct stimulus checks sent to americans will it now appears some republicans and perhaps even the white house itself may be on board with that idea. Some workers have gotten sick. Have sued their employers for not protecting them better from the virus. Republicans wanted to shield corporations from that type of lawsuit. Mitch mcconnell is no longer saying that really has to be included. But they're so lots of hangups lots of reasons. This could be sunk so this morning. I don't want to talk about the partisan back and forth. I wanna ask a simple question what happens. Congress does not pass a code relief. Bill what are the consequences days weeks and months from now. Abc's chief business and economics correspondent. Rebecca jarvis is here rebecca. Can you smell it the stakes for me at the capital this week will brad incredibly important. It is make or break. It's life or death. I'm just day by day trying to figure it out day. Bonday that in the pocket of for example a single mother like angel recently spoke to in detroit who works in a hospital makes minimum wage. Therein has three school age. Children were that school. As of last friday is no longer available to her in person. The choice of work and kids shouldn't be a choice. I want to be the best mom i can be. This could be the difference between her being able to afford to pay for childcare to have someone come to her home or to even drop her children off at daycare or her potentially having to quit her job because she has no other alternative to care for her children and at the same time work so it's been challenging trying to keep going to work and prevent being far low or fire to keep you know inconsequential our lives and our lifestyles. But at the same time some nights. I go to sleep. And i'm like why am i going to work. What are the domino's that would actually fall. Just nothing happened like. Can you walk me through how that would play out from. The halls of washington to small business will two things especially are hammering. Small businesses and many small businesses in this country happened to be independent restaurants. They have not given us money and they have shut us down. We cannot survive. My staff cannot survive in one case particularly in california. You have a number of restaurants who've been told to close their doors because of the spike in cova cases now that we are going to close the outside. It's of our employees go home. And how are they going to pay their bills in new york while restaurants can remain open and they can serve primarily outdoors. They have a tipping point because things have just gotten so cold that as goldman sachs estimates about forty degrees. Is the tipping point where people are no longer going to be interested in dining outside while we're there in new york. The summer has just been a disaster to scott freezing cold after thanksgiving and the world has just completely fallen apart. Earlier this year in september the national restaurant association pulled all of its members and said how many of you can make it. The next six months without any additional aid from the government forty percent of the national restaurant association members. These are small independent restaurants across the country. Said they weren't gonna make it six months without help. That was three months ago. We're already in the territory where they weren't sure they were going to be able to survive. We see all these posters that were all in this together but it doesn't seem like we are when a particular industry as being targeted stricter than others for many of them. they're using their home as collateral their mortgage as collateral. What does it mean if they go out of business it means they could lose their home. It also means that their retirement savings for for many small businesses. The retirement account is the business itself. You've seen from j. p. morgan for example. They're now estimating the first quarter of next year. We'll see negative economic growth Moody's they're saying at this point that without help from the government we will see a double dip recession. And that's really what we're talking about here brad. What's you're not just envisioning like stays really bad. You're envisioning a scenario where it could even get a lot worse really suddenly affecting everyone with a potential deal rebecca here. I'm sure the average person would just take what they can get. But when you talk to economists business leaders are there things that need to be in this deal to avoid that disaster scenario. You just talked about well brad. According to a group of more than one. Hundred and twenty-five economists including jason furman who's a former top economic advisor to president obama. Those direct cash payments to american families are incredibly important. I need the help. My kid's name to eight other people's kids. The the the thing about stimulus checks is that they're one of the fastest ways to get people money that money gets spent immediately and it gets spent immediately in ways that can help give the economy a little bit of juice at a time where people have been pulling back but once you start looking at what various analysts in what economists are calling for. They're saying at this point sooner rather than bigger is better in fact If you look at what. Bank of america's chief economist is calling for right now. She wants to see money for testing for the vaccine and contact tracing pandemic employment insurance. That's the employment insurance for gig workers and people who have lost coverage because they've already extended out all of the benefits because they've been collecting benefits for too long and then direct aid to small businesses. Moody's mark zandi adds to that list. Rental assistance among the programs ending soon is the cdc eviction moratorium. If it expires it will lead up to five million tenants facing eviction in january the beginning of winter. I've never been in this situation ever before my life. I've never had to come out to beg for help. And even calling any of this stimulus is sort of a misnomer. It's really about relief. So that people can just get to the other side.

"national restaurant association" Discussed on Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes

"WanNa make sure that they have safe place to work So that's the focus in that just by necessity starts to make you You just kinda shuffled priorities a little bit at the at the business and Yeah, and I don't know what it's going to end up. End Up looking like a one thing is for sure is that? If, we ever get our doors opened again, we need to bring our payroll costs down. And where you need to find a way to do it without compromising the incredible integrity of the food But then you know what you end up compromising is the already limited kind of customer service. That we're able to offer which I'm very comfortable with but who knows if the culture will adapt to that? I don't know. I mean. The on a positive note is like, I. Hear a lot of people saying that we're never going back to what it used to be, and when they say that that that may mean that like there's less kind of involved customer service. But what it also means that people are GonNa be paid better work conditions are going to be better hours they're going to be better health insurance is going to be better you. Know before the pandemic came I think it was the fall I started to work on sub minimum wage issues with the restaurant opportunity senator one fair wage trying, and there is there is some city council members who are interested in trying to ban the sub minimum wage in Chicago and you know I I decided all chat with some of my restaurant owner buddies to see if I can get them up to speed on this issue. And you know people were like super skeptical that it would work thought everyone would put everyone out of business basically kind of like. National Restaurant Association Illinois Restaurant. Association Standard Line on it, which is, Oh, it's bad for small businesses. You know put us on a business, which is just not true. There is no data that suggests that that will happen. And and now all of a sudden, those same people talking to right now are starting to get involved in this one fair wage campaign to ban the way. So I, mean, on a bright note I think people are just like. Yeah we the we had been operating an unsustainable culture in an unsustainable sustainable business community. Yet none of us are getting rich off, but it's still shouldn't be that way. So I'm hoping that we return they'll be better jobs in restaurants. and. I. Think there there might be and the the market and the X. The expectations for customer service I think will have to be and for price point, we'll probably have to be adjusted in light of that but I even think I I sometimes wonder that the pandemic is causing you know people who make good money to think like who, yeah, who cares if it costs fifteen sixteen bucks if the workers are taking care of innocent happy place I like to be even cracked crap. Maybe I won't go by plastics from target you know so I can support these restaurants. That's a great hopeful way to think about it and I hadn't thought about that about the sort of inherent unsustainability, the Labor conditions and that sort of tip minimum wage. Now, how much of American dining depends on this and that if we reformulate that out of this, that would be an incredibly positive development. Tony.

Obituary: Herman Cain

"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

The Future of Restaurants During COVID-19

"But of all the places we like to gather now shutdown by this pandemic restaurants are also some of the hardest hit so today. We're going to talk to people in the industry. The chefs the restaurant tours to find out what they're trying to do to survive for them for us for everyone. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction restaurants. Sort OF BOTTLE. The zeitgeist their community. And it's where people celebrate as not just about eating. That's David Chang. He's a chef and the founder of the momofuku group which has restaurants around the world. He's also the host of the Netflix show ugly delicious if food establishments were important. People wouldn't want it so badly. There's just somethin'. That is a connection to just being human besides tasting delicious foods. Chang calls restaurants quote cultural banks and worries about the erosion. This pandemic has had on all aspects of the dining experience. We literally take ninety percent of cash flowing. Give it back to everybody else. On top of trying to make delicious food and build organizations however small they might be no one gets in this business at least that. Iron Meyer so they can make a ton of money they do it because of the life and the positive impact you can have both on yourself and others around you and you that away that that. That's that's going to be pretty brutal closing. His restaurants in March was extremely difficult. He had to furlough around. Eight hundred workers in this week decided to close to of his restaurants reopening others. Maybe even harder. You have to reconfigure literally every decision of how you operate in a restaurant. It was hard enough to begin with. How do you taste food? How you order food. How do you sanitize now? How do you do contact with delivery? You even allowed transaction via credit cards anymore. So now you there's like all of these things now that are going to be expensive. Chang doesn't have the answers yet. But he thinks he knows what it's GonNa take. Define I just think that we're going to need some ingenuity and creativity to sort of align some mutual problems that we have in this country particularly in the food space and sort of reconfigure. How this whole works on his twitter feed. Chang has also been asking people to send him photos of reopened restaurants in cities like Taipei and Hong Kong. It's fascinating to look at them. Some of the photos show. Police Systems delivering coffee. Temperature checks at the door and customers. Even receiving full body disinfectant sprays. Don't worry with their clothes on too many. These measures may seem a little over the top. The common thread is we have to actually make impossible hap and that gives me optimism really genuinely does because these kinds of impossible tasks that sort of her. My brain are what I most attracted to. And we can't have anyone working off a different playbook everyone needs to be working the same playbook every restaurant every business in the absence of a so called restaurant playbook the National Restaurant Association which is a lobbying group is doing what it can to try and offer some guidelines for reopening obviously frequent hand washing some element of distancing some element of face covering certainly reduced interaction between the host. And the guest. That's Larry Lynch Senior Vice. President of Science and Industry at the National Restaurant Association Lynch said it's already begun. Restaurants are already testing out new methods. Everyone's looking visit different ways just this weekend. We saw one of the towns here in Florida. Closed down one of their street to the restaurant. Tours could pull the chairs out into the street. If you're used to going out as being a curated. Dining Experience Lynch describes the post pandemic world as sort of a safety focused obstacle. Course I would say what you're probably GonNa find is before you get there. You're going to look online and look what the instructions are in that particular restaurant what their expectations or. It may tell you to wait outside. May Ask you to place your order online. It may tell you that once you get outside. Send them attacks and let them know. You're outside wait once you're inside. You may wait a bit before the waiter or waitress actually comes up and greets you greeting maybe something as simple as confirming your order rather than taking your order. Once you die. You may find that your table is included as fasces. Wasn't it passed. It's going to be cleared all at once rather than sporadically during the dining experience. When you're dining probably won't see the manager come over to ask how your view was and whether or not you enjoyed yourself. Restaurants are going to have to tailor safety measures to suit their capabilities and it is possible. Not everyone can physically accommodate these recommendations for example Irene. Lee doesn't see her Boston. Restaurant may may hosting sin diners anytime soon. We're a small restaurant so we have about thirty six seats. Which means the possibility of socially distancing inside the building is basically none but Lee. Who was a finalist for this years? James Beard Rising Star Chef Award has still managed to find a silver lining. We are pretty much going to have to change our whole model which sounds scary but is also a really exciting opportunity. So how do we re imagine what a restaurant can be? Water restaurant can do what restaurant staff are capable of Lee in her employees are already starting to answer those questions. For example her restaurant may may is open for delivery and is also hosting virtual dumpling classes. The restaurant is delivering groceries to healthcare workers and selling pantry staples to the community like milk and eggs. The goal to help customers avoid the grocery store because I think supermarkets are going to feel unsafe for a lot of people for a long time and I just think like we have the ability to get almost any of those products probably at a better price at Mamie and so it would be kind of unconscionable to not try to use that to help keep people safer and to make their lives more. Convenient Lee is taking this time to rethink how a restaurant should operate. And she's hoping the industry is a whole does the same especially in the areas where it was struggling even before the pandemic. I think that this is a huge opportunity for us to keep talking about the biggest issue that our industry house which is Labor on the issue of jobs and low wages and like terrible workplace environments. That is always been the bane of this industry. I am hoping that the compensation model could be altered and cross training could become more prevalent. But that's the long term in the short term lease preoccupied with just keeping may may afloat even though she says. The survival of the restaurant isn't her biggest concern. If mamie doesn't exist in in five or ten years that's totally fine with me. I'm going to be really pissed off if there are no cool. Independently owned quirky restaurants to eat at like I cannot eat every day I refuse and so I think that for me. The question about Future is almost a little bit less important but for a lot of people in this industry is all we have one thing I've learned. Is that the restaurant. Industry is full of dedicated creative leaders and is someone who enjoys dining out. I'm optimistic. They're going to find ways to meet the challenges ahead and keep this important part of our culture alive. It's definitely GONNA be an uphill battle but I'm GonNa do what I can to support my favorite places with takeout orders and contributions to out of work employees. They could really use the help

"All Right Folks. Thank you and welcome back to the draws cast. I'm very excited to be with you again. I hope that you've been continuing to listen to the draws cast. We have some great interviews that we've downloaded over the last couple of weeks and have another great interview Here today with me He is the GM at the Briar Woods Country Club and a city just outside of Buffalo New York called Hamburg and his name is Spencer. Murray and Spencer and I know each other through some work that we've done together through the National Restaurant Association and we've been working on getting Spencer on the show for quite some time so Spencer Murray. Welcome to the Dr Cast. Hey thanks for having me Jeff. It's good to finally make this happened with you. I'm looking forward to to get into it with you yet. It's going to be great A previous podcast. I had a gentleman by the name of Aaron. Primo on and I called him a Whiz Kid. Because he's done quite a bit. In his years that he's been a Professional Anaconda put you into that group Not so much because your age because frankly I don't know how much or how old you are. You don't need to tell me that but I think that you've done a lot for the number of years that you've been making a living for yourself. So that's another reason why I wanted to have yon of the draws cast so So before we get your professional cry like to kind of set it up and find out a little bit of background about the people that are interview so Where did you grow up. What city specific did you grow up in? Sure so starting I'll tell you I'm thirty one so that we can get that out. Okay well then. You can be a whiz kid concerning. Yeah Yeah for me. That's a whiz kid. And I look sick. Buffalo New York in just the suburbs village called Williamsville. Just fifteen minutes outside of the city. You know. My my dad was a military guy. He was in the eighty second airborne and a he was a Jag officer as well too. So a military lawyer And my brother sister or at Fort Bragg North Carolina and then my dad moved up to buffalo to start his own private practice as an attorney so I was born here in Buffalo born and raised here and Most of my career. I spent seven years at a at a breakfast restaurant here. Most people are aware of if you've ever heard of the original Pancake House. Yeah I spent seven years as a kid started when I was first job. I worked at a P. It's a place I was fourteen years old. I made five bucks cash under the table and I they let me run the police that it was just kind of just got it at an extremely young age and learned how to deal with people then started as a dishwasher at original pancake. How listen and then throughout college and somebody's work. I Work Sides Washer. We'd orange juice plus boy creative people as host and just went through all. That was kind of my start hospitality and stuff but I love this area. I'm a diehard bills. Fan Bills Mafia. We're we're out here representing and I've lived away a couple of different places and now back. So you're part now is did you say it was the Buffalo Mafia or the bills Mafia bills? Yeah I had heard that term before. That's pretty interesting So that was going to be a question of mine if you were an a sports fan for the sports that are in the buffalo area but it sounds like it a yeah. I usually if you're from Buffalo. You're you're a big bills and the sabres kind of life around here whether we're good or bad and you say bad but we're good fans and we have a lot of fun so having been to buffalo a few times myself For those of you out there who are listening that have never been to Buffalo Niagara Falls is what would you say about twenty minutes? North of Buffalo. Was that about right? Yeah so Niagara Falls is right there. But Buffalo's got a really cool young vibe to it Especially as you get down into the city. Downtown so If they've had a really good kind of revitalization of the city over the last five six years and it's really taken this kind of artistic beautiful and just driven approach to making the city. Great you know the the food culture here is amazing. The People here are great. It's called the city good neighbors and and I love it. Here this is this is certainly western. New York is is my home and a Lotta. Yeah and it's very different Then you know people when they think of New York they think of New York City. When people think of Michigan they think of Detroit but there's so much more to the states of New York and Michigan than people realize because they just focus on that one area buffalo in western New York people. Are you say you must go to New York City all the time like seven and a half hours away from here? I can make it to Chicago in almost the same amount of time per se and I can be in West Virginian. Yeah exactly so. It's very different but I encourage. I don't work for the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce but and I'm getting no money from them for this interview but I can't tell you that it's a good place to visit if you're looking for places to go The summer or even in the wintertime. Because you you work at a country club but it also acts as a ski resort to my correct about that though so where I live. I live in a town about an hour. South of Buffalo called Eligibility York and it is awesome magical Kurowski town and there's two ski resorts that are so why I snowboard side. Love the winters play. Before this I worked I managed a restaurant in ski jump on so my busy season was winter and now the golf course. That's kind of flipped the script you know so I enjoy winter a little bit more so now but definitely work a little bit harder in the summertime now but no but we're connected I mean like I said I live in his ski town which is awesome. Actually New York has the most ski resorts I think out of any state country number wise. And it's great out here okay. That's great so now you are the GM of the Brier Country Club and we've established that you've worked at the International not the International House pancakes but the original house of pancakes. And that's kind of. Yeah and that's how you got started In your professional life How is it that you went from early management? Even though you shouldn't have been managing that original house of pancakes how did you get from there to the GM of the brier would country club? I can give you a little outline and just kinda how it went so Actually have a history degree. I played Lacrosse in college. I got a scholarship to pull les division to Ross at Franklin Pierce University I was always a history nerd. Grownups and I didn't really know what I wanted to do So my my major. I just decided to take history. I liked it. I played the cross. I thought I'd be the cool history teacher and coach at the school Had that kind of plan out but then I realized that time I kind of liked history. More a hobby rather than something. I wanted to do every day but at that point. I kind of knew I just wanted to do something involving hospitality. Entertainment an Kind of a not a shy guy and I went to small school for comparison. It just know in working in those kind of environments that the original packing house and stuff you just. I just learned how to deal with people but you had to these environments. So that's why I wanted to do so. I graduated. College became a food supervisory Internet. Six flags theme park in Springfield Massachusetts. I were a looney tunes tie and Khaki Pants and a short sleeve blue button down so you have yourself a six flags they mess and those kinds of things and I did that for a summer that I moved back home and I became assistant manager at the ritual. Pancake House at this place. You know the way you come in. It is the busiest Brecca's place all the area and it was one host which was myself still wore Khakis at that time. Couldn't get away from it. I guess And Green Pole and and everybody came in their name on a dry erase for it and that was the wait list for the thing and everybody just stare at you and here. I am this young kid and deal with all these adults different people and everybody's hungry after church. The breakfast in Hama just taught me a great deal of patients and just kind of savviness of just kind of dealing with people of all different ages and expectations

Food And Beverage Industry Hit Hard By Coronavirus Outbreak

Food And Beverage Industry Hit Hard By Coronavirus Outbreak

"It is a hugely uncertain time for those in the service industry restaurants and bars have been closing their doors and that has meant so many people have already lost their jobs. We bring you now. The stories of three people trying to figure out what happens next. My name is Simone Barron and I work in the service industry I have for thirty four years and I currently live in Seattle Washington. I was working for Tom. Douglas Restaurants Tom Decided to close all of his restaurants Laying off eight hundred people. It's pretty devastating. Everybody's really unsure how they're going to pay their rent pay their mortgages see their children their families. We all know that if we don't get that next paycheck that a lot of us are going to be in some trouble and then that's the other thing that we're all worried about is if we will have jobs to go back to so. We're all really panicked right now. Yeah My name is Daryl noon and I am a partner in a wine store and bar in Manhattan. We have a shopping meals. Have a bar. And we're in a an open market place so the sales of the bar dropped pretty drastically but people were buying wine in a way. That was like pretty panic. Inducing like cleaning out our shelves so quickly quickly after that everything had to shut down except for our retail store. But that nobody was going to be allowed to come down so we were only allowed to do deliveries which we had never done before people are like calling in Queens and being like. Hey Can you come to Bayside? And should we go to bayside and drop off a bottle of wine to someone? It's it's a fascinating new reality. My name is Samara Sariano. I am a food server in San Francisco California. The last couple of weeks have been extremely stressful and pretty scary. A lot of people stopped coming out. Normally I worked six shifts a week and last week. I was scheduled three shifts a week. I basically used the money to pay off bills for this month and to buy what groceries I could and I really don't have even one hundred dollars to my name now And I'm really not sure what I'm going to be doing for rent or bills next month. I've already implied for unemployment insurance. But I know that will take weeks to come through and it was still probably won't be sufficient to support me. San Francisco's so expensive and my rent is a great worry to me right now. It's a difficult time for so many people what can be done. We're going to put that question to Sean Kennedy. He's an executive vice president. At the National Restaurant Association that organization represents more than half a million restaurant businesses and they sent a letter to the White House and Congressional leaders yesterday asking for critical help. Thanks so much for being with us on good morning. What Kinda help are you looking for? They're really three buckets that The restaurant industries looking at right now one is just immediate access to cash second is medium and long-term access to credit and then tax relief for the industry when we come back on line. This is really the perfect storm for the restaurant industry. This is not like a natural disaster. That's located in one particular area. The passes quickly and we focused on rebuilding. There's a nationwide problem in which States and localities are just shutting down restaurant operations across the nation without a lot of warning and with tremendous impact in our. It's certainly early days but I mean given what we're seeing. Do you have any estimate as to how many people in the industry could ultimately end up employed? That's a great question right now. What a lot of restaurants are doing is trying to retool trying to allow for more takeout drive through delivery services For a lot of restaurants they just physically aren't able to consider themselves that way for other restaurants they're looking at whether or not switching to that business model is going to generate enough revenue to keep the doors open and the burners turned on so my sister happens to work in the restaurant industry. It was talking to her yesterday and she was just heartbroken. Because this is work as you know people who work in the Industry. They socialize with their co workers. They become sort of your extended family. Her entire community her entire network has been affected by. We heard from some employees Just a couple of minutes ago. Who are deeply concerned about their own future. What is your message to them right now. It is heartbreaking and a lot of our restaurant owners view their employees as family Almost all they do is saying but it's one in which we are really struggling with the best approach we can take. That's where it'd be making such an aggressive ask of Congress right now. This is a national pandemic. It's a public emergency. So we need the public government to step in and provide this funding so that our goal right now is really just to keep these employees on payroll allow them to continue to work for us even if we're not operational even if we're in hibernation so to speak so that as soon as we get the all clear signal from public health officials we can pivot. We can open up those doors and we can bring everyone back online as quickly and immediately as possible new knotted to this earlier. But are they going to be restaurants? That just can't survive because they can't make it on takeout alone. We're really trying to avoid that. But it what is challenging right? Now as we don't know a natural disaster has a beginning a middle and an end we were in the beginning of this right now and we cannot forecast how long we're going to be in this position. Or when are we allowed to open Restaurants generally measure their cash flow and available credit in days weeks. Probably not months so as it becomes a sustained problem. The restaurants are going to have to really tough decisions to make which is why we need Congress to act quickly. We've heard these calls to the public to buy a gift certificate to their favorite neighborhood restaurant as a show of support. Is that something you think is a good idea right now? We we absolutely support that. Obviously we are focused right now on serving our community.
