Small Business Majority reports that DREAMers don’t shy away from entrepreneurship, either. Those protected under DACA work at small businesses and start their own small businesses in droves.
Many small business owners are vulnerable to predatory practices from the unregulated lenders, said John Arensmeyer, founder and CEO of Small Business Majority.
To better understand the state of rural small businesses, Small Business Majority conducted a three-pronged research project to explore the unique needs and challenges of small business owners in rural communities.
A 2017 study by The Small Business Majority found that 70 percent support paid family leave. Employees are paid from the insurance fund so their employer can hire temporary help or offer overtime to other employees.
The report, from the White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA), included Trump administration arguments that the exchanges are showing greater signs of stability.
"Even though the shutdown is over for now, we're concerned about the speed with which government agencies can address the backlog of small business needs,” said John Arensmeyer, founder and CEO of Small Business Majority.
“I know it was done under the guise of supporting small business, but the reality is it’s not really helping them,” said Hunter Railey, the Colorado state director of the Small Business Majority, a left-leaning business advocacy group. “It’s just been a tax break for the larger firms.”
"The Small Business Majority, a network of 58,000 small businesses, says that it's relieved the shutdown is over temporarily, but that firms face a long recovery"
"While small businesses may benefit from an agreement that will temporarily reopen the entire federal government, it's an inescapable fact that the partial government shutdown inflicted substantial damage on America's small firms", said founder and CEO John Arensmeyer.
