Join FAB FULTON, Chairman of the Committee on Small Business, Council Member MARK GJONAJ, and small business owners from around New York City on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 2019 at 3:00pm on the steps of City Hall for a "RALLY 2 SAVE SMALL BIZ." As the attached flyer says, if you are a business owner "tired of unfunded mandates, rising taxes, red tape and overbearing regulations" then join us on the steps of City Hall to make your voices heard.
This statement is from Council Member Gjonaj: "As Chairman of the Committee on Small Business, I invite you to stand up for the mom and pop shops in your neighborhoods, the small businesses and the bodegas in your neck of the woods, the 2.1 million Small Businesses in New York.
Since the arrival of the retail chains and online shopping, small businesses have shut their doors after years of providing services to their local communities. Furthermore, it has become harder for startups to survive – approximately 50% of small business and 80% of restaurants never make it past year five. The local Small Business industry has changed and Small Businesses are in danger. Owners are struggling to keep their dream and livelihood alive."
