Results show half not surviving more than two months without help
SANTA FE, N.M., April 2, 2020—From Jason Espinoza, New Mexico state director for NFIB, on the release of its poll showing 92 percent of small-business owners negatively affected by the coronavirus and about half of small employers saying they can survive for no more than two months, and about one-third believing they can remain operational for 3-6 months.
“There is no putting a brave face on these grim numbers. There’s only rolling up our sleeves and getting to work on the road to recovery, which runs down Main Street first, and requires small-business revitalization. And that means immediate relief, coupled with medium and long-term policy solutions to boost small-business growth.”
