Savesmall pledge WI - Paycheck

The #SaveSmallWI Pledge

Pledges so far...

Back at the beginning of 2020, it was already tough to be a small business.

Then the COVID shutdown "temporarily" closed all the mom and pop shops.

Then a bunch of those stores were looted.

Seriously, not even the writers of Days of Our Lives could have come up with this dramatic of a plotline.

While some are talking about a second-wave shutdown in the fall, we're uniting to support small local businesses today AND to stand up to keep them open in the fall.

By signing this pledge, I commit to MIND MY LOCAL BUSINESS by choosing to buy from a small local business, instead of the big box alternative, at least once a week.

Because here at Paycheckology we live, breathe, and deliver the news that affects regular-sized paychecks. And right now, there is an unprecedented attack on regular-sized paychecks in .

Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, and they’re the lungs for regular-sized paychecks. It may sound like we’re exaggerating, but, the numbers don’t lie:

  • Two-thirds of new jobs are made by small businesses
  • Small businesses are responsible for 44% of our nation’s GDP

And the struggle-bus that small businesses were already on basically just had it’s motor explode. So we thought - what can WE do to help these Paychecks and their People?

Well, we don’t have a trillion dollars to throw at them.

And our government is slower than a snail crawling through molasses at getting them relief.
