Labor

Owning and operating a business is one of the most exciting endeavors you can venture on. Too often, cutting through red tape and dealing with local, state and federal compliance can prevent you from focusing on why you started your own business: your community and customers. We hear from so many of our members that tell us that their employees are everything to them. That’s why we believe it is important that labor laws help promote and foster an environment for small business owners and managers to truly build a repertoire with employees. Simply put: managers know what’s best for their employees, not the government.

Labor costs are some of the most expensive costs any company faces, big and small. We believe and advocate for sound labor and healthcare policies that promote flexibility in the workplace and an environment for both a business and its employees to grow and prosper.
