President Joe Biden and U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen acknowledged the toll the pandemic has taken on Latino businesses and workers and reassured them Tuesday that they are getting help to bounce back and would be key in leading the latest economic recovery.
"I know how hard it's been the last two years. It isn't easy to hang a closed sign on a dream or a family legacy that you poured your heart into building," Biden said to the virtual U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's legislative summit.
Biden and Yellen said Latinos would be helped by the first pandemic relief package passed under the administration, the American Rescue Plan.
