Businesses Most Concerned About Health Care
Increasing health care costs is the most cited concern of small business owners in California, according to a recent survey, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Small Business California, a nonpartisan statewide advocacy group, surveyed 500 small businesses in the state on issues including health care, workers' compensation, government regulations and energy.
About 91% of small business owners said increasing health costs were a "top priority" or "high priority." Eighty-three percent of the business owners said workers' compensation was a top or high priority.
The results of the survey were similar to results from last year's survey, according to SBC President Scott Hauge (Le, Sacramento Bee, 3/24).
