Will the American Dream Be Another Casualty of COVID-19?

Keeping the doors open at this local favorite is becoming more difficult.

Jennine and Dave Dayler are committed employers and members of their local community in Brookfield, Wisconsin. They have worked hard to keep the doors of “Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon” open during COVID-19. But as Wisconsin approaches its eighth consecutive month of heavy-handed restrictions on bars and restaurants, staying open has become increasingly difficult.

Wisconsin’s economic restrictions began on March 25, and once the 50 percent restaurant capacity rule took effect, business for Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon plummeted. In a new video released by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), the Daylers recount their attempt to stay afloat while operating under so many government restrictions.
