Massachusetts has lost almost 1,000,000 jobs as of May 8. More than one in four workers are without work and the state is borrowing money from the federal government just to keep up with unemployment payments. The forced closures associated with the coronavirus response have devastated our state economy.
Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance believes every business is essential to those that built them and depend on them for their jobs or for their services. Massachusetts cannot continue to force businesses that are able to safely re-open to stay shut down. To put it simply, saving our economy is saving lives.
Governor Baker and many of our state leaders have done an admirable job communicating to the public the ways to be safe. It’s time our State House leaders show they trust the people and small business owners of Massachusetts by allowing them to safely re-open our communities.
Please complete the Call to Action and urge Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito to allow for businesses and their workers to begin to safely and responsibly re-open. You can take the call to action by Clicking Here. Please share this Call to Action with your friends and family and share the link on your social media accounts. The Governor and state officials must hear from you.
