WHY ARE PEOPLE SO OBSESSED WITH CREDIT UNIONS?
(MONEY.COM) The coronavirus crisis is forcing many Americans to take a hard look at their finances — and that includes re-evaluating where they keep their money. Banks may be the most obvious option, but credit unions tend to have pretty passionate fans. The factor that sets credit unions apart is their philosophy. Banks are generally for-profit entities, which means they tend to serve shareholders. Credit unions are not-for-profit cooperatives, which means they tend to serve customers. https://money.com/whats-better-credit-union-or-bank/


$120 BILLION STILL UP FOR GRABS
(ALIGNABLE.COM) Over $120 billion in Payroll Protection Plan Relief funds are still available through June 30th for small business owners. The Federal government is a bit perplexed on why businesses aren’t gobbling it up. They even tried to make it easier with the new Flexibility Act. Alignable gathered the latest about the PPP to help business owners more easily decide their next steps.
