Middle class needs financial help during crisis

With the new virus that the world has, it has hurt the most important population in any country. Financially, the middle class is the most important to any country.

The workers of a country are the ones who pay the most taxes and also live lives that reflect the character of a country. Every country that has a good and lasting reputation has always had a robust and healthy middle class.

Now all the restaurants and bars are closed and some manufacturing jobs are shutting down. I hope they get some financial help.

Not only do those occupations support the tax system, but they also keep the economy going.

I hope this virus is going to get under control as soon as possible so life can go on as normal.
