Last weeks of legislative session! Take action today.
The Senate approved S.10 by a vote of 18-12. It would increase unemployment costs for small business owners through:
- A 20% expansion of unemployment benefit.
Estimated cost to small business owners: $35 million; plus, adds to the challenge of finding qualified workers.
- The creation of a new benefit for dependent coverage.
Estimated cost to small business owners: $12 – $21 million.
