Labor Day: Recent Small Business Wins Against Big Labor

Date: August 31, 2018

This year has brought several key wins—and progress—for small business owners on a range of labor issues, from defeating the Persuader Rule to a key SCOTUS victory.

NFIB has advocated for years for greater freedom for small businesses to lead their employees in the best way they know how to, and has recently scored a number of historic victories on labor issues, even as other challenges loom on the horizon. 

“No one understands how regulations affect employees more than small business owners.

Duggan. “Revoking the persuader rule and eliminating the overtime rule has allowed Main Street to grow the economy in historic numbers.”
