If any at all

Conditions improved within a year after Roosevelt took office. There was no question about that. Banks were open. More people had jobs. Farmers were doing better. And the poor were not so close to disaster as before. However, conditions were far from perfect. Ten million workers still did not have jobs. Young people leaving school were lucky to find any job at all. And most business owners were only earning small profits, if any at all.

Please explain the boldface part for me,thanks

Hi Floratang,

“And business owners, if they were earning profits, those profits were small, but many were not making any profits
