Americans Lose Jobs & Businesses While Congress Focuses on Tigers and Weed

“A recent study found 800 small busi­ness­es a day are clos­ing across the coun­try,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D‑MN) wrote Sat­ur­day on Twitter.

While some ques­tioned the dec­la­ra­tion, Klobuchar was cit­ing a study by Yelp. “As of August 31, 163,735 total U.S. busi­ness­es on Yelp have closed since the begin­ning of the pan­dem­ic (observed as March 1), a 23% increase since July 10.” Yelp esti­mat­ed that 60% of those closed busi­ness­es are not reopen­ing, say­ing 97,966 are per­ma­nent­ly closed, which means more like 500 busi­ness­es shut­tered each day.
