I admit that by going through spreadsheets isn’t exactly my definition of a good time, but browsing the list of Oklahoma companies that received federal money from the Paycheck Protection Program was more interesting than most Excel documents. All types of businesses are there, large and small. It makes sense that many of them apply for a forgivable loan. Others seem … questionable.
It is a confusing time for most industries and their workers, so applying for this loan is understandable on the surface. In addition, PPP money was intended to prevent job losses and bankruptcy of entities. Still, the list raises a question: are some people trying to mess with the system? May be. There were several major national brands that were publicly called out for receiving money, and many returned afterwards. I’m not sure if any of the Oklahoma entities on this P3 spreadsheet are big enough to warrant national criticism, but what do we think locally? Mega churches, casinos and fast food chains, are you okay? Considering where we are at with COVID-19, will it matter six months from now?
I tend to think we’re still in a confusing time for employers – no word if Mazzio kept the Meat Grinder and Quesapizza Girl jobs – but as long as we can keep baking the proverbial pizza, we can do it. to arrive . Ditch the buffet, for now.
Pizza PPP-pizza, eh eh eh eh eh
