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. But we know that many small business owners may still be wondering when that day will be and what the Affordable Care Act can do to help.
The U.S Small Business Administration celebrates its 60th birthday today. It is a great occasion to mark and celebrate the agency’s accomplishments over the past six decades.
The United States loves small businesses – it’s official! That’s according to a survey by the Pew Foundation (reported here on SmallBizTrends) which found that 71 percent of Americans view small business more favorably than any other institutions, including religious organizations.
Why is this? Well, small businesses are seen as a positive influence “on the way things are going in this country.” But it’s more than that.
