Aftermath of Gov’t Shutdown Affecting Valley Businesses
WESLACO – The government is completing its first week of being fully operational following the temporary end of the partial shutdown.
The aftermath of the 35-day impasse is now being calculated and has had an impact on Rio Grande Valley businesses, according to the Valley Chamber of Commerce.
KRGV’s John Paul Barajas spoke with the owner of Fiesta Tex-Mex, Jose Perez.
“It hurts because we have to make the same payments but we aren't making what we need to be," explains Perez.
He says their income has taken a 15 to 20 percent hit.
