NFIB members from throughout the state met virtually today with Carton Barton, a legislative assistant for Rep. Virginia Foxx, as part of NFIB’s Virtual Fly-In.
Ordinarily, NFIB members gather in Washington, D.C., each summer to learn more about the issues affecting America’s small businesses and meet with lawmakers and their staffs on Capitol Hill, but because of concerns over the pandemic, this year’s event was held online.
Small business owners spoke with Foxx’s office about a host of critical issues including North Carolina’s labor shortage and a proposed minimum wage increase.
NFIB State Director Gregg Thompson said, “We thank Representative Foxx’s office for meeting with our members and talking about some of the issues affecting their ability to own, operate, and grow their small businesses. We hope we can meet with her in person soon.”
