According to sources, about 30 percent of the small businesses in New York and New Jersey have been completely and permanently destroyed by the draconian government-imposed lockdowns.
The National Federation of Independent Business said one third of New Jersey’s small businesses — about 31 percent — have permanently closed down this year.
“It’s really bad… And without federal dollars coming into New Jersey, the Main Street stores and other establishments are not gonna make it through the winter,” said Eileen Kean, the state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, according to The Hill.
TrackTheRecovery.org estimated that small businesses in the Garden State have been destroyed at a rate higher than the national average.
New York’s small businesses have not done much better.
According to Breitbart News:
The database, TrackTheRecovery.org, revealed that 27.8 percent of small businesses in New York have not reopened following the mass shutdowns that occurred in the state this year, as of November 16.
Governors in New York and New Jersey have utterly devastated their economies with these useless and arbitrary coronavirus lockdowns.
But maybe the sheeple of these states are finally starting to get fed up with these capricious lockdowns. Last week, when New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy went out to eat without a mask and ignoring social distancing, some of his voters let him know about their anger, and right to his face.
