Our small business is not hiring because we are just barely hanging on. We have received NO stimulis money, tax relief or HELP of any kind from the Federal or State Gov't. Most of the stimulis money went to grow government, "education" and union jobs. Keep in mind that government and education jobs ARE union jobs. This is payback for big donations and other help that unions provided in the last presidential election. Small business has been left to wither on the vine, and it is. Pouring billions more into flaky SBA (small business administration) schemes totally tilted for "special interests" won't work either, it has been tried repeatedly and failed with the taxpayer picking up the tab. So if you are conducting your business legitimately, filing and paying taxes, obeying minimum wage and witholding laws, etc., etc. you can only look forward to tougher times ahead. A look at the underground economy however shows many bright spots, crack and other drug sales are robust, no unemployment problems there. Illegal hirings, again great news and no pesky taxes or witholdings to bother with. Armed robbery and murder, again a brisk business, watch the news any night, so on and so on. The gov't gives great "lip service" to problems but is not at all seriously trying to solve them because they are putting themselves and their own interests ahead of the general population. With the debt they are piling up now it is only going to get worse. Many of those who are expected to pay it later are not sharing or benefitting from spending it now.
