California called 2nd-toughest for small firms

Dear All;

The Sunday SF Chronicle has this timely article about
how tough California is on small businesses in this state.
For the article a small business is defined as having under
500 employees. New Jersey is tougher on small
businesses - must be feed over from Tony Soprano -
let me make you an offer you can't refuse. :slight_smile:

In the article this statement is very interesting:

The SBA estimates that there are about 700,000 small
businesses in California and that together they employ
about 52 percent of the state's private-sector workforce
and the SBA has calculated that small businesses created
more than 80 percent of the jobs that were added to
the state economy in 2005, the most recent year for
which data were available.

The biggest gripe - surprise surprise surprise - taxes
- mandated minimum wage base - mandated benefits.

So what is the Libertarian Party of California doing to
help small businesses face those challenges and
reduce their burdens?
