Published

The Shake Shack restaurant has decided to reject the $10 million loan the government sent their direction as part of an emergency program to help small businesses that have been negatively impacted by actions taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The program seeks to provide monetary support to businesses so they can provide payment for their employees during this crisis.

The New York based burger chain is one of many small businesses that has qualified for the financial assistance provided by the $349 billion that’s part of the Paycheck Protection Program. This particular program has already run out of cash.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

“Shake Shack was fortunate last Friday to be able to access the additional capital we needed to ensure our long term stability through an equity transaction in the public markets. We’re thankful for that and we’ve decided to immediately return the entire $10 million PPP loan we received last week to the SBA so that those restaurants who need it most can get it now,” their statement said.

“We urge Congress to ensure that all restaurants no matter their size have equal ability to get back on their feet and hire back their teams,” they added. “We are an industry of 660,000 restaurants with nearly 16 million employees. While it is heartening to see that an additional $310 billion in PPP funding is about to be approved, in order to work for restaurants, this time we need to do it better.”

One of the perks of the program is loan forgiveness, should businesses who receive the money use it to hire back furloughed or laid-off workers by the month of June.

Shake Shack, owned by Union Square Hospitality Group, originally applied for the loan hoping that things would be clarified by the time the loan was approved and they could keep employees working.

The White House has already rolled out a program to try and help get folks back to work over the coming months, but ultimately, it will be up to states to decide how best to take those guidelines and implement them.

What happened below is just a small snippet of what we’ll see when the officers accused of killing Floyd are exonerated. Check this out, via PTNewsNetwork: Louisville protesters have reached a new low, verbally attacking families and small children as they attempt to enter a cheerleading competition. Louisville protesters attempted to lead a protest caravan thoughout the city, but only made it about one block before Louisville Metro Police Department officers intercepted the vehicles shutting down the caravan. For several hours, the protesters attempted to regroup, finally stopping infront of the Louisville International Conventional Center, where a cheerleading competition was taking place.

Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney general is under a bit of fire for something he wrote all the way back in 1976 while he was a college student. This is yet another example of cancel culture, except the left won’t care about this issue because Garland is a liberal. Have to protect the liberal from the evil Republicans, right!? From Breitbart: President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as a college student at Harvard University wrote in a review of a musical that a song about rape was one of the play’s “hilarious group numbers.” Here’s what Garland wrote back in 1976… A combination of factors, however, keep the vocal problems from becoming disastrous. Most important are the Jones-Schmidt songs themselves, simple and engaging melodies with a few tender ballads like “Try to Remember” and some hilarious group numbers like “it Depends on what You Pay,” which provides a shopping list of rapes for sale (e.g. “the military rape–it’s done with drums and a great brass band.”) Here are some of the lyrics… We’ve the obvious open schoolboy rape, With little mandolins and perhaps a cape. The rape by coach; it’s little in request. The rape by day, but the rape by night is best. Just try to see it. And you will soon agree, señors, Why Invite regret, When you can get the sort of rape You’ll never ever forget. You can get the rape emphatic. You can get the rape polite. You can get the rape with Indians: A very charming sight. You can get the rape on horseback; They’ll all say it’s new and gay. So you see the sort of rape Depends on what you pay. It depends on what you Pay. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahCjK6RjR88 Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
