58% of WA businesses supported latest Covid lockdown
A survey conducted by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA has shown that 58% of WA businesses supported the most recent Perth Covid lockdown.
Chief Economist Aaron Morey joined 6PR’s Oliver Peterson to discuss the survey and give his thoughts on the state government’s $2000 subsidy grant.
Morey says the Chamber of Commerce and Industry was pushing for a tiered grant system but is happy the government is offering some compensation.
“Moderately impacted businesses would receive a $3000 grant and more heavily impacted business up to $5000”
“Look we appreciate that from the state government. They’ve come a login way from the February lockdown”
