Why are people that are still employed and doing quite well receiving Stimulus Checks? More than half, maybe 80-90% of the people I know are still working. So why are they receiving free money? Just a thought, but wouldn't that money be best served going to small businesses and others who really need it. The funds allocated to small business is already gone. Instead of giving money away to the people who are still working, wouldn't that money be best used elsewhere? Although technically, I'm still employed, but the business I'm in is huge here in (NC), and was shut down as well as all the companies we do business with. I haven't received a stimulus check nor do I deserve one, however, this shut down has and could damage North Carolina businesses for years to come!
