    Small business owners/ self employed left out

    by Zack Witham, about 6 hours ago

    Another government idea that will leave small business owners and the self-employed out in the cold.

    I would suggested that if our government plans on pushing this idea through then they should be prepared to fund the program IN ITS ENTIRETY.

    The majority of small business owners that I know have to run on such tight profit margins as it is. There is no way they could afford to pay employees when they're not physically at work. This could very well bankrupt many people.

    And what about sole proprietors lie myself? Who will foot the bill for me so I... Continue reading

    Being Sexually assaulted and harassed at work is difficult

    I need to heal and the government hurt me... Continue reading

    When the business can't open without you.

    by Elle, 19 days ago
    My career is one in which, if I am suddenly ill, a replacement must be found or the business can't be open. At all. This puts a great deal of pressure upon a person to come in to work even when ill. There is an expectation that, unless you are incapacitated, you will come in. Once you are there, an effort can be made to find someone to come in and replace you, if you are really sick. But it is bad form just to call in and not show up. Most people in my situation will haul themselves out... Continue reading
