A special message and request for action from Mass Fiscal Alliance:
Massachusetts has lost almost 1,000,000 jobs in just 40 days. 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.
President Trump and Governor Baker have done an admirable job communicating to the public the measures necessary to keep safe going forward. 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.
PS: PLEASE share this email with your friends and share this on your social media accounts. The Governor and state officials MUST hear from us.
