Speaking up for Illinois small businesses

This week I joined twenty of my fellow legislators in writing to Governor Pritzker to ask him to help our small businesses who are struggling to find enough staffing to fully open their doors. Now that all the pandemic restrictions have been lifted, many of our local businesses are still having a difficult time getting back to 100% of operations because they cannot find enough employees. “Help wanted” signs are in evidence all around the state.

We asked Governor Pritzker to follow the example of many of our neighboring states and “help our small businesses who are finally getting back on their feet by giving them a plan and a timeline, and helping them find the staffing they need to truly get on the path to recovery.”
