Businesses leaving Democrat riot torn cities
A Minneapolis business owner is leaving the city in the wake of violent protests that broke out after George Floyd’s death, resulting in his business being burned to the ground.The riots are part of a Democrat war on America. The lockdowns in Democrat-controlled states also damaged the economy of those states. They are an example of how desperate Democrats are to stop the Trump economic revival in the US. I think there will be more business exits from Democrat-controlled cities to red states,
Kris Wryrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma, Inc., has decided to relocate his business out of Minneapolis after rioters burned it down. 7-Sigma was located in South Minneapolis and had been in the city since 1987.
“They don’t care about my business,” Wryrobek said, “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.” He went on to say that a fire engine was sitting at the scene and didn’t attempt to put out the fire.
Other business owners echoed Wryobek’s words. They say the city turned its back on them.
The destruction that took place in Minneapolis amounts to over $500 million dollars in damages. One-thousand businesses were damaged, and 52 of those were destroyed, the Star Tribune reported.
Wryrobek said that he is confident that his business will overcome, but that it would not be doing it in Minneapolis.
According to Business Insider, at least 4,400 people were arrested the weekend of Floyd’s death. Six states and 13 cities declared states of emergency. The National Guard was called into 21 states and Washington, D.C., and 26 cities in 16 different states have instituted curfews.
These riots, combined with the effects of the coronavirus, have deeply hurt national and local economies. Riots are hindering the economy’s comeback after the virus, and people are reportedly afraid to open their businesses due to rioting and looting. Some businesses that are beginning to open are dealing with broken windows or graffiti on top of other stressors.
"The fiscal hit from dealing with COVID-19 and the recent protests could lead to several government job losses as many states were already strapped for cash and have had difficulty secure federal aid. The economic recovery is fragile and violent protest across major US cities will make this rebound longer and flatter,” Edward Moya, Senior market analyst at Oanda, said.
