1 in 5 WI small businesses say conditions need to change or they are toast!

Somethings gotta give! 

A new report claims that 32% of Wisconsin small business owners said extra Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits made it harder to hire or re-hire workers. Also, many of the small businesses that applied for Payment Protection Program (PPP) loans need more cash in order to survive! Talk about needing a life line!

Key findings from the survey include:

Most PPP borrowers (84%) have now used their entire loan. Almost half of PPP loan borrowers (47%) anticipate needing additional financial support over the next 12 months.

Sales levels for small businesses remain at 50% or less than they were pre-COVID sales levels for about one-in-five employers.

The CARES Act provided additional financial assistance of supplemental unemployment insurance benefits through July 31. The program presented a significant challenge to some small business owners. 

Lately, many small businesses were running scared as the threat of legal action is a serious concern for 21% of owners and a moderate concern for another 34% of owners.
