what business owner do you see sitting back and doing nothing? if you would clarify that and say BIG business, I will not take issue with what you
said. If you mean ALL business owners, even the little business owner that works an average of 15+ hours a day 7 days a week, then I will have to
I have seen small business owners DO MORE, because they are literally more invested in the business than someone just there to make a buck. They
usually LIVE where they work as well.
They are usually involved in the community, provide employment to the community and worry about the image and impact their business has in the
Small business is the back bone and the heart of capitalism. I would remind you all that the number of small business employees FAR exceeds those
employed by "big" business. When you speak against capitalism you are very much speaking against the little guy.
You would be hard pressed to see a business owner do nothing and still stay in business.
THEY LABOR more because it is THEIR HOUSE.
I grew up in my dads meat market. By the time I was 9 I was doing what I could on weekends and vacations. I am no exception. Every small business
since the dawn of time employs the family as well. They usually get worse treatment than an employee. There may be different philosophies in every
house, but in most everyone chips in since everyone eats thanks to those doors staying open.
Employees go home, have time off, vacations, lunch breaks, and all sorts of considerations in a small business. Family does not usually.
So I have to disagree. The plight of the average worker is not as dramatic as you wish to portray. Even now I am looking across the street at the hair
salon where the ladies daughter is doing someones hair while everyone else went to lunch....The little guy IS small business as well....
As far as big business, it is an extension of the corporation that big government has been turned into.
