On July 20, 2020, D.C. Policy Center Executive Director Yesim Sayin Taylor, was quoted in the Washington Post:
Meanwhile, day-care centers are losing slots or going under. Few have enough space to serve as many children as in the past, given the need for physical distancing. Many can’t afford to reopen.
“Their financial situation is very precarious right now,” said Yesim Sayin Taylor, executive director of the D.C. Policy Center.
Many [small businesses] earned small profit margins before the pandemic and cannot survive in the new economic climate.
“In the long run, small businesses are engines of job creation, but they’re also engines of job destruction,” said Taylor, with the D.C. Policy Center.
