Senator Ron Johnson visited Royal Basket Trucks in Darien, WI to take the Small Business Challenge.
NFIB’s Small Business Challenge is a national campaign that invites lawmakers to spend a day “on the job” at a small business in their community and allows them to experience firsthand the challenges small-business owners face, including day-to-day management, compliance, and tax issues.
“Growth is the number-one component of a solution to many of the nation’s challenges. Entrepreneurs and their future employees are ready for growth, but our nation’s uncompetitive tax code, its crushing burden of debt and a sense of hostility from the government toward job creators stand in the way,” said Senator Johnson. “Though I spent 31 years in the private sector as a manufacturer, I still found today’s experience during the Small Business Challenge valuable. I hope the NFIB can utilize this experience to help more lawmakers understand what it is like to own your own business. Then, perhaps, more of them will appreciate the work of our nation’s largest employer, small business.”
