"Place where we can get something done that's worth doing what what's probably not worth doing is to just do something small or where people can Pat themselves on the back and tail look look we banjo cold that's really great you know we're moving forward that doesn't necessarily really accomplish anything what happens when somebody uses it so cold and hurt somebody where where's the accountability so I chuckled band that yes we should absolutely do that but if there's no accountability what's the point and we're we're really focused in is that accountability piece does then what part of the conversation speaker Melissa Horton is with issues on the centerpoint energy's home service plus hot line as you know governor walls many times said this is our one opportunity this is our one chance after what happened George Floyd this is our chance to get something done and he's worried how people would react to how they would feel about making significant progress if something didn't get done to those Minnesotans and you others were watching the legislature and wanted to see substantial change and it hasn't happened what do you say to those folks well it is difficult we have a divided legislature and you can look around the country were some really incredible things are happening in Colorado for example and if Democrats across the board and Democrats are certainly capable of fighting with each other there's a little bit easier to move major legislation like this when you have a single party control so the card is that the hand that we've been dealt is that we have a divided legislature and the challenge in front of all of us is to move Minnesota forward together even though ideologically we're not aligned and I think that we're capable of doing that you know senator Gazelka and governor walls and I put put that with our entire team put in place at a good forty eight billion dollar budget last year so we do have a track record of getting hard things done and we can do that but you know it's not going to be fast and I would say that one thing that would be great is if everybody would quit trying to spend what the other I think there would be other guys that and we did it in a room together you know we couldn't maybe having press conferences for awhile and we just negotiate and see how it goes just maybe take a break of casting aspersions for a weekend and see if we can get somewhere so let me ask about that because Paul Gazelka here Paul Gazelka initial couple other times Curt doubt in the show in the last ten days highly critical of the governor's role highly critical yes the governor over seen what happened after the that the death of George Floyd highly critical of his role do you believe the governor is helpful in what's taking place right now well when you when you frame it like that day they answer that is clear is what good does it do for Curt doubt and Paul it is okay to only have negative things to say about the governor and to not engage in a partnership conversation right like what good does it do to come on to the radio and explain all the ways in which they're not happy with the government I would just ask is let me let me just push enough respect because I would say intervene both those down a number of times I don't remember them nearly as critical of governor walls in the first you know eighteen months or so of his role as governor as as they have been over the last six weeks let's see well I think it's because we're in the twenty twenty election season and if you're a Republican in the United States of America right now and you have to figure out how are you going to get your team to win in November you can either run with the president knew that thirty eight percent approval or you can get people angry at Democrats and to give Democrats are ineffectual and it's a you see across the country looking out what governors are doing until the nineteen and using that as a political tool to to try to make the case that Democrats are good at running government because it's to me it's a distraction from the fact that they have such a weak leader at the top of the ticket lot easier to talk about we hate the businesses are closed so let's blame the governor rather than the virus than it is to talk about stick with the team stick with the trump team America's doing so great so I think that the politics start to become a factor in the summer of twenty twenty and the closer we get to November the more date the political attacks and manage each side and the harder it is to get something done thanks for coming on I always appreciate it will reach out and on that note but I think they all listen for for getting things done despite the fact that those campaigns and politics there's also a governing peace and we can do that we've shown that we can and there's there's a lot of reasons to be hopeful you realize a lot of people are very skeptical about that because we we we we didn't need to leave until the work was done we'll we'll be back at it thanks was appreciated yeah thanks for having me the speaker of the house Melissa Hortman you want to react to what Melissa or minute to say one reactor Paul Gazelka had to say and are you optimistic that something is going to get done I want to get into that and also tell you how just by taking a look at WCCO radio on Twitter you could win a fantastic opportunity to have some fun we'll tell you about all of that when we come back a new Starkey three out WCCO four Chad.

P. but what does that mean I'm am I all of a sudden you get a get a notice okay appreciate you can go get a test at this location what part of it is elves were open enough and more businesses are function and more people are getting out of the public what do we do when for example is an outbreak down in southwestern Minnesota in a particular plant and so testing can immediately find out well who's had the virus already and move through it who doesn't have it and can continue to work it also that's were just is really helpful because we can continue to work and that you know the food supply chain is is a real problem it's suddenly people are totally shut down you know you've heard of all the hundreds of thousands of hogs that are just being utilized and buried because the the supply chain has been disrupted and so that's where the testing can really help and the fact that we can do twenty thousand a day and that the Mayo Clinic and university of Minnesota stepped up to the plate is amazing and will make a big difference from Minnesota get nothing going absolutely well I I think most of us want the state to reopen safely but as soon as possible and get full capacity isn't as cut possible what is your ideal timeline for re opening the state senator Gazelka honestly as soon as possible the the camp like now you know the governor did have some university Minnesota data that basically showed if we shelter in place seniors and the vulnerable just that group first a shelter in place everybody the results are the exact same another same amount of deaths predicted and same amount of beds needed but the difference is the peak comes in June instead of present direction which is July and the big concern was making sure we have the task of making sure we had PP for the front line workers and now we do and so I'm hoping we get to may fourth that ward or now in the end any time between now and then that the governor moves to shelter at home just the seniors and vulnerable and that doesn't mean business goes on as as usual everybody has to continue to practice safe distance and washing hands covering your cough stay home if you're sick those are all things we're gonna need to have a place for a while and I think we can do that and what I've seen as our business community has really got the message and they're all gonna happen whether they're functioning now or not virtually all of them have a plan to what are they gonna do when they start opening to make sure that they're following those CDC guidelines talking with senator Paul Gazelka you can to win a remaining minutes with him six five one nine eight nine nine two two six or you can text us senators okay put up a picture of you on my linked in a few days ago and it got a lot of use and some comments and Mike Gordon is asking this in light of what we've heard about you know all the numbers with the cut the congregate care facilities or nursing homes he wants to know why has the state failed to protect residents of long term care facilities does the state need to be locked down to protect the vulnerable sub population yeah see that's that's the group that even with social distancing even locked down in quarantine they still are very susceptible and if they were the first to be sheltered in place immediately at my mother in law father loggers sister living facility and way before the governor acted that that facility said no gas you can't come in because it is contagious and the folks that are most vulnerable are the seniors and of the numbers on that right now I don't know if this this is from last week but basically the youngest person that died in Minnesota from Colbert nineteen was fifty six and the meaning of all of the people that died is age eighty seven so as you know what's in it and most of them are nursing homes so that's where even moving forward it's it's gonna be awhile till we figure out what's the best way to protect you know folks folks that are vulnerable primarily over age seventy yeah I mean it is just sad to hear about these deaths in these numbers my father in law is and that assisted living and he's ninety years old and it's just heartbreaking senator is okay that we can't go to see him we go to his window wave at him through the window and talk with him on the phone but you know that that is just it is just not what he wants either he wants us to be inside with him some texts coming in for for you one person says speaking of supply chain to the senator to support Donald trump's tariffs the terrorists destroyed the supply chain system as well didn't they this is coming in from a listener but I support Donald trump's what was the word tariffs how do you spell it I wanna make sure here yet yet terrorists T. A. R. I. F. F. S. I don't even I don't know that you get to weigh in on that as a state senator like I don't feel like I'm back at the cabin here's here's what I would say is I I appreciate that the governor and the president are working together you see that's the the governor occasionally presses the president said we need more PP and I should've done yesterday and you see me occasionally publicly Presley in the governor saying Hey we open up sooner we can do this but it is very very important that the governor and the president and myself and the governor work together to battle this I mean it's it's two fronts as the virus and all of the problems related to that but then it then it's as we as we start to open up business if we don't do that soon enough you have all the mental health problems you have all the foreclosures you have all the problems related to that and so I'm I'm committed to working to the success of Minnesota as is the governor and you know I'm and the president you know he he responded early a shutting down flights from China I'm glad he did but who are the World Health Organization didn't give mentality vice he just did it ahead of time he has probably made a few mistakes the governor's probably made a few mistakes I have probably made a few mistakes but it's important that word work computer work together on this as it's just bigger than Republican Democrat so I'm just not going to go there on that right I'm glad you say that though because again though I always wanna remind people about the constitution about how government should work it it doesn't mean that Republicans and Democrats or senators and governors get along all the time you question each other that doesn't mean you're just respectful and cantankerous you're questioning each other because you're protecting the people that's the point yeah exactly and and especially with the emergency powers whether it's the president for all fifty governors it's not the way we normally run the government in Minnesota right I think long term life I'm trying to get to the place where the governor works with the legislative bodies with all the billions of dollars that are going to be coming from the federal government I think we should be deciding that together how we're going to spend that money what is what is related to cold at nineteen and and again that's not being disrespectful is just focusing on that's how government supposed to work but it's hard to get back to that you know when you're in the middle of this and the peak might be in June or July and sell it what a tough spot but I feel like Minnesota's most ready to handle it the fact that Republicans and Democrats are working together and we got the you in the university of Minnesota and lots of facilities here at three AM what the companies that are stepping up to the plate and I'm proud to be a Minnesotan as were battle of this we've got a lot of calls coming in to try to get in one or two before we have to say goodbye Rick is calling from white bear lake hi there Rick I wanted to just share with you what mine mine my friends are like take yours on the ground number one the model seven done right from the.

"Corona virus Rajkummar back with your phone lines are open folks what do you want to tell me about your reaction to the re opening we've seen headlines that as many as one hundred thousand workers will go back to work Monday in Minnesota in quote non customer facing businesses and offices what does that mean you don't get into it with senator Paul Gazelka around one fifteen you can get into it with him then chew but for now I want to hear from you are you one of those people going back give me a call or text six five one nine eight nine nine two two six what do you think about re opening and then we had a text from people who were in big time disagreement with professor Johnston our guy on the markets when he talked about this concept of borrowing from the future one person saying machining you need to find a new expert professor he's borrowing from the unknown future ideas are extremely bullish another listener texted this we'd like to know where are the billions being given out by the federal government where they coming from are we borrowing from China interesting questions as I myself am a little questioning of the borrowing from the future okay so what does that mean is there a time line on it when would the hard and to be I mean how long do you think we should let that go on as a state as a country what are you comfortable with text me or call me six five one nine eight nine nine two two six I also want to know have you been out to the parks or to the lakes Minneapolis announced last week Minneapolis park board is cutting down basketball and tennis nets at parks I doing some other things is that from Weiss where is it foolish what do you think because people can go to Saint Louis park and play unless tennis courts tennis it seems like a sport that you can stay quite socially distance especially if it's just two players playing on opposite sides of that very big court and that nets I don't know Devin thoughts I think the more restrictions we have in wide open spaces the more congested some of the other wide open spaces like around the lakes are going to become I agree sorry it was answering a phone call will only take a right yeah yeah but I I do agree and as far as like cutting down the nets and stuff I'm still playing basketball and I've been out to the parks and the problem with cutting down as people the passable courts always packed anyway and since I just drained every shot the the ball goes through the hoop and then just bounces away because there's no net right also I pretty much air ball every shot to be honest so the ball just like rolls down the hill and I'm chasing it all I just wonder about some of these things right I mean yeah for sure I get the intention or it will go to the phone lines I don't hold anyone up who wants to come in here but I can't you know I get the intention folks but does it make the most sense I just went out this morning early six thirty AM because I wanted to be out I happen to be mostly only the aisles beyond that you know the different rows are set up most of the roadway around lake of the Isles is blocked to cars just a little bit of it you can have cars that pedestrians can be on the roadway bikers on the bike trail and then pedestrians which our riders and walkers on the regular passes there so is it working for you I want to know give us a call give us a tax six five one nine eight nine nine two two six Joe is on the line from Saint Paul Joe thanks for calling we'll talk with her she would have to say thanks very much for taking the call I'm a grandparent appearance and an educator and I want to offer a different set of suggestions and you heard from the professor before I also finally have a PhD in education first I think we should not be putting all of this on the future I don't want to have our children and our grandchildren having to pay a huge tax so I think we should modestly increase taxes on the wealthiest we're not wealthy but we are making contributions to a variety of places that we think are doing really good work so I think we oughta modestly increased the taxes on the wealthiest people we ought to expect the people who have been blast to contribute a bit more I think we yes we can borrow some money on that I think that we can move ahead but I think the governor is doing a great shop well I really don't think we should lie all of this on the future yeah I would have to agree with you on that one thank you so much very well articulated Joe I appreciate that you know it is a tough time for teachers it's a tough time for institutions there were some big stories on the front section of the Star Tribune today about the different university systems and the multi millions they've lost from having to either give housing money back to students because they're not living on campus now or because it looks like indefinitely they're going to have to be online order there are no there's no summer enrollment of students on campus and that everyone wants to do on line so it it's really it's going to it I think every month it goes it goes by it will be that much more devastating on both the Minnesota economy and the global economy and of course the United States economy all right so more techs are coming in your calls are welcome have a couple more minutes for calls before we talk with senator Gazelka six five one nine eight nine nine two two six thanks for clarifying one person says they're actually taking the hoop as well as the nets so apparently Devin you're a basketball court you've got the hoop or you may have the who band that now I don't know that this is Minneapolis is taking down a lot of things to prevent people from a lot of times young people but people from being in those spaces and you know I gotta say Minneapolis has a lot of wide open parks and spaces yeah I would rather have them on those tennis courts and things like that or shooting just you know a couple people on a basketball court then crowding around some of the lake passenger rails so the park I go to it has a tennis courts three basketball hoops and then a wide open field they haven't taken away the hoops yet they have posted up signs that say please no groups please no team games and around yeah please team games so they don't want anybody really playing together you know we're playing against each other getting too close people are out in the field they they play frisbee they play catch no one's really gathering in huge groups some people go out there just to sit and get you know get some error or whatever and the it to me and in my eyes it doesn't seem like it's a dangerous thing and I've been talking with Henry you know if there are people getting together and and groups and to close they should be doing that and they have set up hotlines now that you can call and tell whoever that yeah which again that to me is ridiculous but that's a whole other yeah the phones on that later when I read this text then we're gonna take a break so that we can chat with senator Gazelka one of the biggest concerns around the lakes and Mississippi River parkway is the in all caps large number of bicyclists who ride in the road to close roads are intended for distance walking and this person says the park or needs to do a better.

"So shortly after having identify these cases but I'm not sure who wants to take this is from a M. P. R. we have two major institutions your van and Mayo Clinic group said for days that together they can test forty thousand people a day what's the hold up what needs to happen to test out wisely and will you ask for and wait for the legislature to supply money for it before they can yeah that's a good question well I'm excited about this development I knew this was possible we pushed hard I think was just two days ago where people said what makes you think that we can get to that number were declining this is developing that rapidly and so I spoke today with our yesterday with legislative leaders I spoke with senator Gazelka this morning talk about ways that we can partner we are very much aligned on this idea of trying to get the testing done we believe and I think Jan's working on this and her team I don't want to speak out it out of turn this is on the testing issue just to be clear I know what this team being here I'm getting out over my skis on some of these because I really feel the sense of urgency I think for the people of Minnesota to note that there are robust discussions happen that it is not a decision is made and there are ideas going back and forth this is one where there's a lot of discussion around our partners have stepped up on this I don't think it's a matter of of what's happening or what's not happening I think putting the pieces in place and aligning them and being ready to go when I spoke earlier this week it was my goal to make sure that we're testing everybody who should be tested who needs a task now if that's all hard number I I think that's hard to tell exactly what it'll be I think what their capacity they got their Minnesota is the example of what we can do and again I'm not going to put these folks on the spot but I I think the Worthington situation as it develops may be a place to test that theory to try and see but again the the tracers the epidemiologist will speak but there isn't really a hold up there isn't a disagreement on the money we believe that we would have the authority once they come up with a plan Chris is still in I I would say Janice negotiating with folks because we need to negotiate in good faith for the the state to get this deal in place we think the covert nineteen fund that the legislature gave us would be the place to start with this but I think there's a desire for the legislature to be deeply involved they brought spoke about this to government projects quick lightning round is to help and help my email box my Twitter feed a lot of Minnesotans are asking when you can make a decision on the school year Texas and Wisconsin have decided they're not going to re open flood people are grateful about the outdoor activities but the wondering why not campgrounds when the news baseball start those types of things and what about your salons.

breaking and people are social distancing what could be better right she look I'm a I'm a I'm of the opinion now and obviously you know justice center here curious to get to get your thoughts but you know going out yesterday and the wife and I have a like we already have a whole system in place right and she's going to be the one to go into the store I'm gonna drive and keep her company which is out shopping but let's just have one person going in and handling you know the getting of stuff so we're not overly exposing more people if we don't have to and I expect that this is probably going to be the case for quite some time to come I really feel like I know you've been calling for the St Louis that they come the end of this week we need to start allowing the people and the business is to decide how they want to deal with this we all know how we're supposed to act to be responsible it is time to put the power back to the people and get the get some get the economy moving again well we we don't we I trust Minnesotans to do the right thing I don't think Minnesotans will say old throw caution to the wind and put my my fellow citizens at risk they will naturally do the right thing and all in all seriousness when you go out for a walk you see people doing the right thing and see people with mass you see people keeping six feet away if you're going to go back to work you're not going to go back with a cold now for certain people are going to be much more careful but what everybody is starting to realize are the social and human and economic costs including health care costs on the second Great Depression it's not the best way to fight the virus in fact they might even amount to far more than the tragedy that if the corona virus so some point we've got to get back to work and you can't go on and on and on at some point you can't tell the markets well check back with us in ten fifteen twenty days well let you know or the small business man or woman in greater Minnesota well this keep the coffee shop coffee shop you know shut up there now we'll let you know when you can open it no one conduct business that way and so that's sort of all out just can't go on that at some point we're going to have to face the fact is there any point in leaving I mean I you mentioned the markets the stock markets I I know I've seen a few few people float the ideas of just closing the markets down while this is going on is there any re is there any reason not to do that it seems like you know again it's just sort of piling bad news on top of bad news and it's you know over there it's hurting people for one K.'s turn people's retirement funds is that something that you would that you would advocate for no I don't know it wouldn't be a very demanding on the market one of the market's primary functions in the send signals and so when a company or industry is doing very well no problem dropping the stock goes up all other in entrance get into that mark getting drive the price back down so whether its profits or losses they send signals as to how to allocate resources if you now shut back down in addition to everything else all you're going to do is put a bandaid on a bullet but finally does open up and when it finally does open up in a month in GDP is contracted twenty five percent what do you think it's going to do and going to the bank so it's better that we have eyes wide open and see the reality of and the cost of what what we're doing this notion that some people are calling for the national shut down or the federal government to assume the state police powers it entirely on the bottle that would be the last thing you'd want to do because that aid is the supercontinent gets to the federal government sort of a police state power that is not in the constitution and to this is a fundamental problem with this one size fits all move towards lockdowns it doesn't adjust for the situation on the ground there are going to be hot spot they're going to be tougher guidelines going forward and they're gonna be areas that don't that is the beauty of federalism or the beauty of local government slot I feel like that third factor of politics right so you have the yeah the virus and the health factor you have the economic factor and then you have the factor of politics and I feel like a part for Nancy Pelosi right who already played you know she placed her hand early on and in politicizing this with delaying getting the stimulus passed but it my sense is this is my me personally my senses the politics aspect of this now is creeping in and we have to factor that in as well because there's going to be too many individual yeah lap in Jack London metal dot MSNBC blasting trump had the pretender because we ordered three am to make back here and did not get China's permission to re import them back from their outsourcing plant in China it is bashing trump for that we are we've got a situation here where you you have a apology a sitting U. S. senator we got ten thousand dollars from a company that outsources its manufacturing to China then the pandemic desk to get China's permission to re import math we definitely need back thank you your message defending outsourcing and backing trump the politics the men in there if you're quite sometimes I got it thank you these democratic politicians who would never let a crisis go to waste all are actually looking at their present opportunity politically to start another impeachment allegations to go after trump for trying to stop outsourcing specially in the middle of a pandemic they don't give a damn about the healthcare of the American people I've seen some us some ideas being floated around more on a global stage than than domestically but but a little bit of demanding that China pay reparations for the damage that this virus has caused not only here but globally the day over the responsibility lies on them is that something that that you think we should be pushing for a harder here in America you know I I we had a defeat garden son Ross on last week and when we broached the subject he said in his line was something to the effect of you know it's hard to demand accountability from your banker and China is in a lot of ways our banker but dad could we find ourselves in a situation right now where we can say look any debt we have with you because of the damage that this virus has caused our country and our economy any debt that we have with you is now considered is not considered paid in full well what do the I think there will be a quote unquote some form of reparations are called perish on the idea that we're still importing rare earth minerals to the tune of eighty percent from China when we're sitting on the largest copper nickel reserves in the world on the iron range and the environmental left and Betty McCollum and **** nothin Angie Craig what let's get that that they'd rather important China you slap a tariff on that right now you may want to slap a tariff on all foreign imported oil make certain our oil industry we had one the the the former largest oil company in North Dakota filed for chapter eleven you may want to do that in order to put America first that's going to be a defining theme going forward through November you're either with America or you are against her it's pretty clear to see working yeah she's starting with with the outsourcing to China she's siding with anybody but president trump in a time of crisis that is that that is beyond irresponsible so I don't know how you would technically get reparations from a sovereign nation you can't you know everybody says well I'll be able to still the Saudis for nine eleven looks more good good good luck collecting so that's always a problem when you're shooting somebody from a sovereign nation or order demanding reparations but U. K. absolutely control your border insight this product is going to cost a little more if you insist announcer in Minnesota jobs to China and then bringing the good back so we saw some numbers this morning that were released when it comes to Minnesota and some some different projections the the number of deaths from full city peaking right over the course of the next you know seven to ten days they took him from nine twenty five AM the six twenty five and again you know these models are that they're not going to be completely accurate by any stretch were supposed to be getting to the end of the order come Friday are you ready to sort of say like what you hope governor Jim was does or would you want to wait until you see a little bit more of what the data looks like sort of hypothetically if case Lewis were in charge and curious five always I I said from the get go that that there is a real danger of an over reaction making things worse the way we're going to be this virus is through baptism medical science and quite frankly once people are are the young and the healthy get tested and they're back in work and we're producing what we complete the vulnerable populations in a safer spot but the newest one start with all I've said from the get go is is not good for Minnesota so I I think we need to get back to work greater Minnesota is suffering the most other than that they have the majority of the jobs that you really don't do digitally so I I think it's I think it's tough on on our citizens trying to put food on the table and the candle stick yeah and we've learned enough I mean I am I say now if we've learned a lot I should say about how this virus operates we have a lot of data to go to work with right now and there is a I think the vast majority of the work force I think could be allowed to get back to work under guidelines that continue to promote social distancing under guidelines that continue to promote safety and cleanliness maybe wearing masks maybe you're wearing gloves that you didn't before maybe we need to make some changes but you know I I I like you said at the beginning of the call Jason I trust Minnesotans when they're armed with accurate information and they know that people's safety is on the line here I think the vast majority of people will follow the guidelines follow the rules and do it in a way where we can still well already flowing and really nice a nice little lesson in modeling the very same people that said Hey go to the Super Bowl go to Mardi Gras the very same people I can name them for you but you said in January and February America has nothing to worry about this quit calling it the Chinese virus are now the one thing we need to stay shut down for a year and there are over one another in order to be completely computer models are and really this is is alcohol when it comes to climate change can't spread out anything the operator wants them to stay it is human error writ large and so I simply don't trust the experts for much of this Jason Lewis and continue to be safe if working people learn more about your Senate campaign if they're so inclined they can go to Lewis for am and Louis for apple are in and find out how we're going to put America first stop the outsourcing of.

"senator gazelka" Discussed on Newsradio 830 WCCO

"The south side of metro cedar north little slowdown moving past full Chakri road looks like we got some problems at the head of the stall predetermined along thirty five southbound you're gonna find things running through how we tend to have a thirty six I'm Jerry Peterson whose talking cure W. C. C. in a a midnight vote the U. S. Senate approved a massive two trillion dollar bill to send checks to furloughed workers help small businesses survive infuse cash into the critical industries and assist the hospital system in the fight against the virus and then the house we'll take a look at it that later this week and to try to get that into action here A. S. A. P. but how's it affecting you and your business we want to talk with the Christian auction dork this morning he's a business owner insurance agent here in the town well it's parked up vote five down brother locations in Minnesota Christian good morning good morning well let's talk a bit about your situation as a business owner tell me about the things that you want and I know the legislators are listening this morning what what kind of things do you need and do you wanna know are what are your biggest concerns right now all the biggest concerns are you know when when will we be able to be back open for business at our shops on a full time basis the limited access to our stores has recent business quite a bit so that the length of time they were out to surprise the biggest concern right now what is your idea situation Dunn brothers here now your locations around town can people still hit the drive thru so of the five stores that we have only two who have drive throughs so the other drives are definitely open the ones we don't drive throughs we still can have pick up and delivery it's kind of hard to do delivery with our stores when you're looking at a hot beverage yeah and you can't have more than five people at a time correct there are five people at most six feet apart in the store has the government been able to help employees with unemployment insurance your employees arm yes I believe there and that was one of the things that was set up right away is that if they were let go because of reduced hours that they could collect unemployment right away interposing it's not supposed to hurt our unemployment rates when they are collecting unemployment Christine how about the government loan process with businesses well we're we've started the process there's a couple different ones there's SBA disaster as well as governor walls there's help with Peter is a former economic employment department mmhm that one we can start applying for haven't really got a whole lot of information on that but what I've seen is anywhere from twenty five hundred to thirty five thousand dollars in non interest loan which half of it could be forgiven what do you think for other than your stores how long you know you can keep on going well I mean when you look at their thirty five thousand that's the kind of dollars that's less than what our revenues are on the net the store for a month so you know we can we can probably go a month and a half maybe two months after that it's going to be pretty tough how about your help if you had to tell people that that you know you can have them anymore for some yeah and then we have some that are just scared and don't want to come to work yeah so it's it's it's hard for many people to work because they want to stay home I don't blame them if they have health concerns are just since a difficult to try and run a business when you can't it employs where are those dumb brother locations here in Minnesota Christian so we have Wilmer Minnesota buffalo Minnesota Woodbury apple valley and then the south end of uptown at Hennepin and thirty force how about traffic at those locations right now are there any that there are are doing better than the others the ones with the drive throughs you know the business hasn't dropped off as much those are buffalo and Wilmer the Hennepin location I've been hit the hardest because that's a really what PM sit down type of setting so those those are probably the worst hit Sir Christian as the legislature gathers today's many of them as can't can they will be doing that to today reconvening for a day long what would you want them to know you know I I am opener's first store and people two thousand seven and by June we get the nancial recession back dance or whether that and we did not see any help them this really has been caused by the government shutting this down so I would really hope that they look at all avenues it's not just the business owners of the shops are closed the need to are taking this I mean landlords are still expecting their rants banks are still expecting their mortgage is to be paid so it it needs to be shared by everybody not just putting it on the backs of the entertainment restaurants owners theaters you know everybody needs their help with this and I understand that when it comes back that you know then we will need to be prepared to pay taxes help both units back to normal but I can see a lot of small businesses going under this yeah that said frightening man is probably coming into what you just said maybe a new normal is on its way here Christian good luck I appreciate you sharing that with us this morning and I know that you're out of the concerns a lot of people thanks for taking the time this morning and and the best to you stay safe thank you very much I appreciate it you bet Christian auction door the business owner and insurance agent but as you mentioned he's owns five done brother location sure Minnesota Woodbury apple valley Minneapolis buffalo as you mention in Wilmer so that's interesting on the heels of this massive relief bill that was approved by the Senate late last night a on a unanimous vote by the way and of all those that were there SO we'll keep in mind that because now that goes to the house on Capitol Hill we're going to keep alive the locally as to what's happening with our own government here in Minnesota because there as I mentioned a Christian there reconvening today and so will happen there is so who knows and we're going try find out though because we're looking forward to our conversation with the Senate minority leader senator Susan Campbell Jones coming up this morning at seven fifty will chat with her about what's going on over there today just that the challenge of getting everybody to vote and how you get the votes counted we talked about that was senator Gazelka yesterday's while in today it all takes place so we'll continue to talk about that then our good
