The SBA recently released the data of bailout recipients. I just found out that one of my direct competitors got $150,000 from the federal government. They are a small shop like mine. The only difference is that they were in business making money before COVID 19. Tech Fixers applied for the same program and got $0 because I started the business in 2020.
I heard from my business consultant about a business that closed, fired all their employees, put their FAMILY on the payroll and collected the government money. Totally legal.
