Congress passed the largest relief package in American history this week to address the economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. The team from Align Public Strategies looks at how it will affect restaurant operators, and what could be coming next.

No matter the crisis, restaurant owners have always met the challenge. The Working Lunch team talks about how the industry is coming to the help of their communities in this time of need.

Finally, with the economy in turmoil, regulators and attorneys general are looking out for bad actors who might exploit the situation. The team discusses that as well, and wraps up the podcast with an abbreviated legislative scorecard.
