I’ve decided to purchase 500 made in America stop signs.
Here’s what I’m going to do with them;
I’m going to place them in front of every franchise company’s headquarters…every multi-unit franchisee’s stores or restaurants that have publicly said that they can’t grow their businesses because of the Affordable Care Act. That way, their customers and even their prospective franchisees will know ahead of time that they’re dealing with an anti-growth small business.
A Load Of Hooey
That’s what it is.
I’m not sure if I like some of things contained in the Affordable Care Act. At last count, there were almost 3,000 pages of who knows what contained in the bill. According to Fox Nation, the document has more pages than the Bible. (Old Testament or the new one?) Anyway…
Think about the absurdity of the following statement, made by the CEO of FASTSIGNS;
“I know hundreds of franchisors and multi-unit franchisees that have 50 or more employees. They will now be at a significant disadvantage compared to their smaller competitors who qualify for breaks under the law.”
Maybe so. Maybe not. Catherine Monson goes on to say that, “Some will reduce staff or choose to hire more part time workers to get below that threshold. Others who are close to 50 employees have said they will choose not to grow their businesses — either by not expanding staff at current locations or not developing additional locations — to remain below the critical 50-employee mark.”
Franchises Will Stop Expanding From This Day Forth
That’s right; every franchisee who’s ever dreamed about expanding his or her business, won’t. They’re going to set their franchise businesses on Stop, and wait to see if the Affordable Care Act will be repealed?
Didn’t you know that
All franchise owners operate like that? They take a wait and see approach. And, if their businesses lose market share-because they’re in wait and see mode, so what? I guess that must be life as a franchisee-a robotically-engineered one, at least.
That’s because one would have to be a robot to do something that stupid. Now, in case you don’t know a lot about robots, here’s a brief lesson…real brief;
Robots don’t think for themselves; they’re programmed to think in a certain way. No matter what.
It’s Really About Obama
Unless you’ve taken a hiatus from watching the news for the past year or three, you’ve probably noticed that there’s been a little bit of discord in Washington. For some odd reason, some of our elected officials have taken it upon themselves to oppose anything that President Obama does-or attempts to do. It doesn’t matter if his proposals would help the country or not. That’s because these people can’t stand President Obama. Country first? Right.
If I owned a thriving 48-employee franchise business
and, I wanted to see it continue to grow
I’d do whatever it took to make it happen.
Heck, I’d even hire another employee or two
if I felt it would increase my revenue.
That’s because I’m in this to win. And, so are today’s franchisees and franchise executives.
Screw the politics.
What do you think? Would you Stop your businesses’ growth because of Obamacare?
