Not sure how the health care law may impact your business in Oregon? SBA and Cover Oregon are teaming up to bring you three Google+ Hangouts that will dive into specific topics of the Affordable Care Act like the Marketplace and the small business tax credit.
Affordable health care is a top concern for America’s 28 million small businesses. During my travels, I’ve had a number of small business owners across the country tell me that the moment they really felt their business was a success was the day they were able to offer health insurance to their employees.
