Business owners in the U.S. are becoming frustrated with the lack of funds being provided to them from banks. Many of the folks I speak with don’t understand why it was alright to bail-out big business while the little guy continues to go under.
I thought this article in Bloomberg’s Business week was a great example of what some of our Federal Stimulus dollars did for small business. While I didn’t support the bail-outs and still think it was a bad idea to put our country further in debt–here is some testimonials of how some used it to put other back to work.
As you can imagine, this is a huge cost to Metro and local governments. I often talk about government regulating business too much, and preventing the private sector from moving forward in a speedy and productive manner. The work card issue is a great example of big government trying to inject itself into the lives of businesses and workers.
