A Labor Day Salute To Small Business Owners

Jim Blasingame:

Today, unions represent less than 14% of all U.S. workers, a 60-year low. Small businesses, on the other hand, number in the tens of millions, and our numbers are increasing by almost 1 million per year. We currently represent over 98% of all U.S. businesses; create over 55% of all new innovations; employ over 60% of all workers; and produce over 50% of U.S. gross domestic product. Plus, we pay for over 70 million workers to take Labor Day off.

Let’s see…big deal on Labor Day – no Entrepreneur’s Day. What’s wrong with this picture?

Maybe next year?
