We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

They have no intention of closing the loopholes - they were specifically created due to lobbyist pressure.

I mean, the parent company of Ruths Chris Steakhouses gets $20M?

Well 10m per company under its heading.

I wouldn’t ever call 500 employees a small business but that’s just me

I just didn't agree with you, sorry if you feel like the victim here. Let's just move on.

TLDR? There are still a TON of idiots going about their business that think this is all overblown.
I sure am happy that it's different here in LA. Everyone I've seen has been wearing a mask in public and most have been wearing gloves.

The checkers and sackers at the grocery stores have been wearing both for weeks and there are large plexiglass shields protecting checkers. I stood in line outside of Home Depot several times in the past few weeks due to a plumbing issue and everyone had on masks, even while standing in the rain.

Maybe that's why California's numbers are so low...

I tend to think of "Small Business" as being 1-10 employees, although 1-50 also qualifies.

But 500? Geez, no.

Yep. Could even be up to 1500 in some instances.


Totally ridiculous IMO

there is tons of those cases just like that. Chains with multiple locations in cities and more locations in different states.

They create smaller sub companies and asked for the money for them. Etc. etc.

As far as I know there wasnít fraud, just corporations and lawyers gaming the system. Canít they get some of those lawyers to put language in there so it ensures that the money goes to the local restaurant and bars?
