Screen Shot 2021-01-13 at 12.47.11 PM.pngChambers Unite on Economic Recovery Messaging
The Oceanside Chamber signed on to a California Chamber Coalition letter urging our elected officials to take critical steps in support of economic recover. The letter reads as follows…

Dear Governor, Mr. Speaker, Madam President Pro Tem, Members of the State Legislature:

The California economy cannot fully recover until businesses are allowed to reopen. Many employers believe they could safely reopen now with the extensive work they have done to create a safe environment for their employees and customers. But, until there is widespread distribution of the vaccine, it is doubtful that California will be allowed to reopen anytime soon with the record number of infections that have overwhelmed hospitals throughout the State. The shutdowns have already devastated many small and large employers, and brought misery to millions of workers. As the shut down continues indefinitely, many more of these businesses will close permanently, unable to withstand the financial losses they are suffering.
