Urge Politicians to Help Create Jobs and Support Small Businesses
With the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Illinois, our politicians must act quickly to help those who have lost their jobs or businesses get safely back to work. State Senator Ram Villivalam has filed legislation that will incentivize small businesses to retrain and hire those who are unemployed because of the pandemic. The incentives will only be available for new hires. These incentives will become revenue positive in the long run because unemployment payments will be replaced by tax revenue. This is the way to stimulate the Illinois economy and create long-term revenue for the state.
This legislation is so important to those who have lost their livelihoods. It will also encourage small business owners to hire new employees that will need training during these uncertain times.
This is the time to advocate for those who have lost their business or jobs because of the pandemic.
