NFIB has joined the Business Council of Alabama and other business groups in a campaign to “Keep Alabama Open.” The new campaign comes in opposition to recent public calls for a nationwide mandatory shutdown.
Throughout the pandemic, Alabama business owners and workers have worked diligently to follow state health orders and best practices when it comes to keeping customers and themselves safe, while continuing to earn a living and support their families.
NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash said, “NFIB is pleased to join the ‘Keep Alabama Open’ campaign to encourage Governor Ivey and elected officials to let businesses continue to operate as long as they continue to follow public health guidelines to protect their customers and their employees. Small businesses are determined to get through this, but they can’t keep the doors open without customers. Small businesses account for 99.4 percent of all businesses in the state and employ 47.5 percent of Alabama’s private-sector workforce. When we help small businesses, we help everyone.”
