Salem Business Journal guest editorial by NFIB Oregon State Director Anthony Smith
NFIB Oregon State Director Anthony Smith has some advice for legislative candidates campaigning as friends of small business: Be one by actions not just by words.
“Small businesses aren’t asking for an unfair advantage, just a level playing field. Here are a few reasons why:
- “They pay more per employee in regulatory compliance than big businesses do
- “They pay three times as much as big businesses to comply with taxes
- “Individual – not corporate – tax rates are often more important to them because 85% are organized as pass-through entities
- “Health insurance is more expensive for small businesses than it is for big businesses.”
NFIB thanks the Salem Business Journal, once again, for its welcoming of small businesses’ side of the story. Click the logo below to read the entire editorial.
