Premier League proposals raise suspicions over US owners’ motives

Backers of a significant shake-up that is dividing English football have been forced to defend the proposals amid fierce criticism from the UK government, the Premier League and the Football Association.

The plan, devised by Rick Parry, the chairman of the English Football League, which runs the three divisions below the top flight, and Liverpool and Manchester United, the Premier League’s two most successful clubs, would hand a £250m bailout to the EFL as well a 25 per cent share of future media revenue. 

For Mr Parry, it is a chance to reset English football and address the unsustainable surge in costs to keep up as the gulf widens between the Premier League and the EFL. It also marks a power grab by the top clubs, as it would concentrate power in the hands of the Big Six, which includes Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

The plan will

Retirement Planning for Small Business Owners

NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Well-planned financial goals, whether they’re for the next week or 5 years from now, are integral to a person’s financial growth. These goals are what drive us to make savings plans, budget, and investment strategies in order to reach them. Without a proper plan in place, achieving these goals is nearly impossible. This is especially true when it comes to retirement planning. Zoe Financial understands that a comfortable retirement is one of the top financial goals a person will have in their lifetime.

Everyone’s retirement plan will differ depending on their financial situation, age, and goals. For instance, retirement planning for small business owners will be much different than employees of big corporations. Since business owners won’t have as much access to traditional retirement accounts, they should familiarize themselves with the different options available. It’s essential to choose the retirement account that’s

The pandemic has been devastating to American businesses, but many entrepreneurs are seeing an opportunity, with business applications up more than 10% over 2019.



SCOTT SIMON, HOST:

Times are tough for small businesses, but WHYY’s Miles Bryan has a story on new businesses that have sprung up.

MILES BRYAN, BYLINE: Derwood Selby got laid off from his job as a food and beverage supervisor at a hotel in Philly back in March.

DERWOOD SELBY: So I started sweating. Like, how the heck am I going to get some money?

BRYAN: Selby was entering into Pennsylvania’s worst labor market since the Great Depression. Getting another job would be tough. But at least for a while, he had a cushion. Selby’s unemployment benefits included an extra 600 a week from the federal government, which covered his expenses. He even started to save a little.

Why Business Owners Need to Show Employees It’s Okay Not to Be Okay

The past several months should turn our traditional thinking about safe working environments on its head — and I’m not talking about changes to a physical space like air purifiers and self-sanitizing elevator buttons. Right now, a safe workplace is about individual protections, from freedom from risk of injury to freedom from coercion, intimidation or harassment.

All four were successful, and most were planning some form of expansion in what then seemed like a booming economy. Yet even as early as March, these owners had already tasted some of the new normal and pivoted to other business strategies.

Each knew the hard part still lay ahead.

In early October, we reached out again to to see how they’ve made it through. There have been more downs than ups over the past few months, but amazingly, all four owners expect their 2020 business to be not far off what they’d anticipated before the virus hit.

Each expressed a sense of being lucky, and of watching the disparate economic
