I know it won’t happen but just imagine what would happen if some big businesses started closing up and their owners retiring. Imagine if Gibson Guitar had given everyone a pink slip after they had their wood confiscated saying “we can’t continue to operate under these kind of policies”. A few doing that and people would really sit up and take notice. Our online business is actually growing in this recession. We will have to decide whether to hire help or remain a small mom and pop business. No one will notice if we don’t decide to hire but multiply that by thousands of small businesses and it has a big effect.
I don’t know if it would have any impact or not, but associations of little businesses COULD try peppering both houses of Congress and the White House with this kind of concern, preferably as physical letters.
Second-hand stores and Auction Houses are popping up everywhere.
Let me know if you want to hire! LOL!
