Unfortunately, we’re living in uncertain times. In order to combat the Coronavirus, many businesses are shutting down. While it seems admirable for companies to shut their doors so workers aren’t putting themselves at physical risk, what about bills? Bills still demand to be paid monthly, despite someone working or not. For the restaurants closing, who pays the waiters and waitresses? With Broadway postponing showings for the next six weeks, how will those actors pay their bills? For some, not working is not an option.

Regardless if they can pay their bills.

“I don’t want any American consumers experiencing hardships because of the pandemic to lose connectivity.”
