Everyone is losing their jobs! The music industry is asking for financial relief



Forty-three companies, including some of the most prominent in the music business such as the Azoff Company, Live Nation, The Recording Academy, Creative Artists Agency, and William Morris Endeavor, signed a letter that is asking congress for financial relief.

The contents of the letter plea's that the economic pain cuts even deeper, touching not only performers and musicians, but also managers, producers, promoters, stagehands, drivers, and countless others who are feeling the immediate repercussions of this new reality,” they added. “This unprecedented economic loss caused by canceled performances and production shutdowns is being played out in bars, nightclubs, theaters, stadiums, concert halls, studios, and festivals in every state, sidelining thousands of workers.”

The letter, issued to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday, asks Congress for financial benefits similar to the recently passed HR 6201, which offers emergency paid sick leave and family medical leave, among others, that 45 signed into law on Wednesday.

Meanwhile in today's press conference, instead of assuring American's about the scope of the pandemic and financial relief. 45 attacked a reporter when asked about what he'd say to Americans who are frightened.

The audacity of the rich to ask for relief while working class people are either placed on indefinite hold/terminated.
