ACT NOW - Spread the Small Business Day Message From Your Desk or Smart Phone

Date: March 03, 2015

The survival of small business depends on YOU!

NFIB/NY and a coalition of more than twenty pro-business organizations and associations are working together to make sure that Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature know small business is the backbone of the state's economy.

On March 3, NFIB/NY and its partners visited the New York State Capitol and Legislative Office Building and advocated for policies that protect and promote small business. Lawmakers need to know the impact that small business has on our economy. Consider the following:

--Did you know that 1 in 5 New Yorkers are employed by small business?
--Did you know that more than 500,000 small businesses employ more than one person in New York State? 
--Did you know that small business employs 40% of the state's workforce?
--Did you know that the three industries with the greatest small business employment are healthcare and social assistance; accommodations and food; and retail? 

It's not too late to help raise awareness about the issues affecting small business by participating in our Virtual Small Business Day. 


Use e-mail and social media to flood Albany lawmakers with messages to show that we mean business!

With over 500,000 small businesses in New York that employ over three million people, small business drives our state's economy. Together, small business can make a BIG impact when we spread our message in Albany. 

Ask your legislator to support policies that protect and promote small business. Remind them of the reasons you elected them and how you plan to vote in November. Tell them to stand up for small business!

- Send a pre-written letter to lawmakers
