Today: Monday April 13, 2015 – This week’s podcast reviews the SAVENYC campaign taking storm throughout social media. It began through the efforts of Jeremiah Moss, the author of the Vanishing New York Blog. Now across the city, people are rallying to pass the Small Business Jobs Survival Act to protect the rights of our favorite local shops to survive.
April 2 marks the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s McCutcheon v FEC ruling, which further flooded the election system by not eliminating the ability for committees to aggregate funding into giant fundraising committees for candidates.
Today, you will hear a very informative interview with Steven Barrison, the Executive Vice President and Spokesperson of the Small Business Congress. The Small Business Congress is advocating the the Small Business Jobs Survival Act to get tenants the rights they deserve to prevent the abuse of landlords to hike rent prices and make unfair lease agreements.
