Years ago, I split a sales company and a service company into two distinct separate companies.
This avoided all that "big business" nonsense that was in effect at that time, also.
Got a pizza franchise...with multiple stores? No problem....just create more than one business.
I think this wailing about "not hiring the 50th employee" is not a wise argument to pursue.
It will come back and bite us on the backside, when, 4 years from now, the dem's show that avoiding Obama care was relatively easy to do, and that thousands of small businesses avoided it, by establishing separate businesses.
