Sam Granato on Corporations
The HIRE Act provides a payroll tax exemption and an employer tax credit for businesses that hire unemployed workers. Sounds great, but businesses don't make hiring decisions based on tax breaks. We hire new workers when our businesses are growing and we can sustain those workers at a living wage. Career politicians may think they passed a law to help businesses in America, but this law doesn't really help business.
As a small business owner for more than twenty years, I know what it takes to create sustainable jobs. We need laws that actually support small business, not ones that just look good on paper. If more of our elected officials had jobs other than being politicians, we would have laws that actually help small business.
