This week, President Donald Trump abruptly cancelled negotiations on a stimulus package that included many restaurant industry priorities, leaving thousands of operators and other small-business owners to fend for themselves. The associations that represent them in Washington, D.C. were not shy about showing their displeasure. This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the team from Align Public Strategies discusses the bleak situation restaurants find themselves in both economically and politically.
The 2020 election is just three weeks away, so the team does a deep dive into the presidential race, the race for control of the Senate, and what is happening at the state level across the country – especially with an eye toward the 2021 state legislative agendas.
The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
