Your Opportunity to speak out on a number of topics such as healthcare, technology and taxes.

The National Association for the Self-Employed realizes that the most important aspect of advocating on behalf of the self-employed is listening to the true-life experiences of self-employed individuals like you. Therefore, the NASE has developed this area of the Legislative Action Center to allow you to tell us your micro-business story.

Job Creation and the Economy

Monday, January 04, 2010

With unemployment remaining high, policymakers have turned their eye to small business as the sector to boost our economy and create jobs.  Yet, many business owners, especially the self-employed and micro-businesses (fewer than 10 employees), feel that expanding in this current economic climate is a big risk and one they are not sure they want to take.  Many have experienced sluggish sales, diminished revenue, and access to credit hard to come by, leaving them to make tough decisions regarding their business.

What do you think needs to be done to improve our economy?  What would encourage you to expand your business and hire additional workers?  Should Congress and the Administration be focused on encouraging existing businesses to expand or should they be urging laid off workers to enter self-employment?
