NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — NewsChannel 5 is hearing from many of you, who are frustrated with delays in help from both the federal and state government.
We checked back in with the owner of a small business who says he’s doing what he can to get by: Trey Harris, the owner of Allstars Limousine, who is dealing with the loss of business surrounding the cancellation of high school proms and events like CMA fest.
"Times are very difficult for small business owners," Harris said.
Harris says he has filed with both the federal and state government, for help for small businesses and for unemployment. But Trey has yet to receive any money.
"yYou have to work, work, work at it, and you go to sleep wondering if tomorrow’s going to be any different than today," Harris said.
State leaders said they are hearing the complaints.
"We are working as hard as we can, as differently as we ever have, to get those benefits to you," said Jeff McCord, the state Labor and Workforce Development commissioner.
