Anyone who’s been following the current financial crisis knows by now that what the government is doing “to help” small businesses isn’t helping, at least not enough. There was roughly $349 billion set aside to help small businesses prevent layoffs and maintain their employees in a fund called the Paycheck Protection Program.
