Restaurant Owner Refuses To Close In Door Dining In Defiance Of Governor

As the coronavirus pandemic causes state officials to tighten up restrictions and lock down businesses, many are itching for additional aid from the government.

But the recently approved relief package, with a proposed $600 stimulus check included, isn’t enough for middle-class Americans and small business owners who are in dire need of help, Illinois restaurant owner Jeff Buckler told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday.

“They’re going to starve to death,” he said. “They’re talking about a $600 stimulus check that won’t even pay a month’s rent. People have car payments, utility bills and all that stuff. Food to put on the table for their kids.”

The Lil Buford’s Bar & Grill owner said this limited support is going to drive restaurant workers out of the industry and into more stable, better-paying jobs, or ultimately unemployment. And Buckler added that unemployment funding isn’t enough, either.
