BOSTON (WHDH) – Senator Ed Markey said incoming government aid to Massachusetts restaurants will prioritize minority-owned businesses and help them recover after being devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.

In a virtual meeting with restaurant owners on Saturday, Markey said the service industry lost more than 85,000 jobs during the pandemic, and President Joe Biden’s American bailout plan provides $ 28 billion for restaurants in the United States

“I’m confident this package will deliver the boost restaurants and bars across Massachusetts need and deserve to get back on their feet and thrive again,” said Markey.
