It looks the lock down in much of the country is going to last a bit longer than expected.  Small businesses account for a large portion of U.S. GDP and employ almost half the U.S. workforce.   Most of these companies won’t be able to survive such a protracted downturn. Every American needs to step up and answer their call to duty to get us through this dark night.  The government’s finances are now extremely strained and it is impossible for the taxpayer to bail out every business and worker.  Rent Holiday Landlords need to seriously consider granting their small business tenants a long-term rent holiday, as in up to one year.  It’s not only the patriotic thing to do but it is also in their best interest.  Imagine the value of the real estate holdings if, say, 4 out of 5 store
