23 Mar FSB APPEAL FOR HELP
During the Coronavirus outbreak we have seen the Government announcing a raft of measures to support small businesses and their employees but we have still seen very little support provided for the 4.9 million self-employed.
These entrepreneurial strivers contribute over £275bn to the economy and we cannot afford to let them down as they face this unprecedented national emergency. FSB has been instrumental in pushing the Government for greater support for this growing number of workers.
They are hopefully close to getting this support but they need a final push to ensure that they get it! To this end, they are going to be repurposing their successful #ThinkSelfEmployed campaign to get the word out and get the Government to introduce measures that truly supports these people.
The Federation of Small Businesses are asking you to help with this by getting the message out this afternoon. In the same way they launched the original #ThinkSelfEmployed campaign, they want members, FSB staff, family members, whoever they can get to post a selfie, a video or an image (from home) with a message telling the Government that they need to #ThinkSelfEmployed and provide greater support.
