If so, and the PPP is specific about 75% of the money going to retain employees, how is that impacting these big conglomerates. Sure they have capital expenses, but that was not the focus of PPP.
Perhaps some of the employees were not documented immigrants. Apparently that is not uncommon at hotels, resorts, private clubs and exclusive golf courses. We know our president’s companies used illegals for decades until caught in the last year or so. In that case, unemployment insurance is probably not available.
