U.S. Latino Business Group to Presidential Candidates: Focus on Small Businesses

The U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is concerned that the presidential candidates have thus far ignored the needs of the nation's small businesses. Today the Chamber issued a statement challenging the president wannabes to articulate constructive small business proposals.

To date, the candidates have focused more on issues that will hurt small business than on those that will grow small business. We hear more about tax hikes, limiting trade policies and the imposition of draconian immigration laws rather than plans and policies that will strengthen the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit.
A significant generator of jobs and wealth, the Chamber projects 2.7 million Latino businesses next year generating $388 billion and $465 billion by 2010.
