The Independent Restaurant Stabilization Fund would jumpstart U.S. economy and protect 3.5M jobs
Today, leading economic firm Compass Lexecon released a new report confirming what we’ve been saying since this crisis began: Independent restaurants are vital to our nation’s economy, and helping us rehire, reopen, and stay open will generate vast economic benefits beyond our industry, protecting jobs and revitalizing businesses up and down the supply chain.
Between this new report and the latest unemployment numbers, it’s never been clearer that in establishing the Independent Restaurant Stabilization Fund, Congress can jumpstart the economy and help our communities recover even stronger.
