Small Business Owners: Feds Are Trying To ‘Destroy’ Us

News
Most people don't get that the great leveling of society, the policies of 'fairness' supported by socialism, has consequences. Small businesses, the huge job creation engine for US economy, has not only seen significant reductions in investment since 2007 but also is facing a challenge to their existing through the redefinition of the franchise model.

A federal labor case involving Browning-Ferris Industries has allowed the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to expand a critical franchising and contracting rule. Known as the joint-employer standard, the rule helps establish which company has responsibility over employees when multiple companies contract with one another.

“Simply put, I believe the NLRB is taking aim at the franchise model and trying to destroy it,” Edward Rothschild, owner of Alphagraphics, said on a call with reporters. “I think it will hurt the employee base.”


If franchisee no longer independently control their businesses (and the potential rewards), why assume the risk? Moreover, why use the franchise model, if corporations are liable for the actions of independent franchisee? It doesn't take much to see that the loss of franchise model would reduce future investment and economic growth. Perhaps Americans, many still believers in the public sector at least for now, will call for it to run their favorite fast food restaurant.
