A message from the IRC:
Since March, we’ve been sending emails with facts and figures about the threat looming over our beloved industry. But behind every statistic are real people who are experiencing this devastation first hand. Every day we hear of another host of restaurants closing for good, taking an average of 22 employees with them. More jobs will continue to be lost every day that Congress doesn’t provide relief for our industry. The people, families, and communities being devastated by this pandemic need and deserve help as soon as possible.
Are you an independent restaurant or bar employee who has lost your job during COVID-19? We want to hear from you. If you are comfortable sharing your name and location for public use, please let us know here.
In showing Congress the real people affected by closures, we’re hopeful they’ll act quickly to pass the RESTAURANTS Act and provide immediate relief to independent restaurants and bars.
Thank you for sharing your experience and helping our movement to save independent restaurants, bars, and the 16 million jobs we support across the country.
