U.S. Black Chambers Says Government Shutdown
Obstructs Black Entrepreneurship
Washington, DC- U.S. Black Chambers President Ron Busby released the following statement regarding the impeding government shutdown:
“It’s deeply troubling yet not surprising that President Trump said he would keep the government closed for months or years. It’s these types of antics that create chaos and uncertainty in the marketplace and small business community.
The impact of the government shutdown spreads beyond government workers and directly obstructs Black entrepreneurship; Black federal contractors are faced with not getting paid, and Black startups who need business licenses issued by the government are facing unnecessary delays.
Black Americans remain the fastest growing population of entrepreneurs, we need a government that supports this progress, not obstructs it.”
