by Eddie Kim 

The government put us in this position by failing to prepare and provide aid. Now they want small businesses and workers to carry the load of the recovery?

The money disappeared before my parents ever had a chance. Turns out,$350 billionisn’t much under the weight of a COVID-19 pandemic that’s reshaping the American economy.
