What do McDonald's, 7-Eleven, and Subway have in common? They're all franchisors that license franchises to small business people, who in turn employ countless Americans.

But in other cases, unelected bureaucrats can hurt businesses that are creating jobs for you and me. New rules coming out of Washington may hurt franchised businesses. When it comes to business ownership, you often hear the terms franchisee and franchisor. A franchisor is like Subway Sandwiches. They own the brand and license it to small business people who might own one or two stores. There are literally thousands of franchisors in many different industries. Currently, if you want to open a franchised restaurant or retail store, you sign a deal with the franchisor (the company that owns the rights to the name, menu or products, and business model). The franchisee pays for those rights and agrees to maintain quality and follow certain standards. However, the franchisee is a separate business that makes its own decisions on who to hire, how much to pay, and what benefits to offer. This system has worked really well, creating more than 770,000 small businesses and supporting more than 18 million direct and indirect American jobs. Importantly, minority franchisees make up 20% of those businesses often locating in minority communities and employing minorities in those communities. Right now the National Labor Relations Board, a group of unelected bureaucrats, is trying to redefine the relationship between franchisees and their corporate partners (the franchisor). The idea is to make the bigger company and the smaller companies jointly liable for employee complaints and other legal issues. If the National Labor Relations Board successfully redefines the relationship between franchisees and franchisors, there may be far fewer new businesses and the jobs they create… because franchisors will be much more hesitant to give inexperienced people a chance at opening a franchise. After all, why would they want to be in any relationship where they were responsible for thousands of decisions made by smaller companies every week. And franchisees didn't risk their life savings to open a business, only to find out they now essentially work for the franchisor. Botton line: this new definition slams the door shut on one of the proven paths to break into the business world. Make Sense? Sometimes Washington needs to understand “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Now that makes sense.

America is home to more than 28 million small businesses that employ 57 million workers. And when you add owners and employees together, that’s a community of roughly 85 million hardworking Americans dependent on the success of small business—most of the private-sector workforce. Small business owners are America’s most important job creators: U.S. small businesses accounted for almost two-thirds of the net new jobs created between 1993 and 2013—a grand total of 11.8 million new career opportunities. In 2012, small businesses created more than 2.1 million net new jobs. Small businesses are the country’s main job creators because they are often growing and looking for new markets to expand. To do so, they need additional employees along the way. Large businesses, on the other hand, generally stay the same size, hiring new employees to replace departing ones. Unfortunately, high taxes and recent government regulations in health care, finance, and labor disproportionately hurt small businesses and prevent them from growing and adding new jobs to the economy. Big business with big profits can afford to comply with red tape in a way that small businesses just starting out cannot. As a result, small businesses still haven’t recovered completely from the Great Recession—and it shows by the chronically weak labor market. More than 94 million Americans are not working or actively looking for jobs. The labor force participation rate—which measures the percentage of employees and job-seekers in the U.S.—is less than 63 percent, the lowest figure since the late 1970s. To bring small businesses back, and strengthen the job market, job-killing taxes and regulations must be rolled back. Job creators should be encouraged to hire more employees, not forced to reduce career opportunities. With 85 million people depending on the success of small business, it’s easy to see why small business is too big to fail.

Kamal Saleh runs a small store in New York City. He was recently given a summons to appear in court for violating one of New York's many rules. His crime was selling cigars... 11 cents too cheaply. Subscribe to my YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/johnstossel Like me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JohnStossel/ Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/johnstossel It's not often people complain about things being too cheap. But New York City says stores may not sell tobacco below a certain price. "Very cheap products should no longer be available. It deters children from starting smoking," says Dr. Kurt Ribisl, who studies tobacco policy and testified at the New York hearings in favor of a tobacco price floor. "Cigarettes are the most lethal product ever introduced into interstate commerce." John Stossel agrees cigarettes are dangerous. But he asks, "Shouldn't individuals have the right to decide for themselves if they want to smoke? And what is the cost to New York City businesses in complying with all these regulations?" For tobacco alone, the regulations are 47 pages long. Kamal faces a $2,000 fine, a huge amount of money for a small store owner. "You have to sell a lot of sodas and sandwiches in order to make the $2,000," says Andrew Tilem, Kamal's lawyer. Andrew represents a lot of small businesses in New York and says the other regulations are hurting small businesses. "It's the big guy who basically can hire lawyers. It's the little guy who's trying to pinch his pennies to make a dollar that has the biggest problem." Tilem say small stores are constantly going in and out of business, but "the big business community is thriving. You see Starbucks. You see 7-Eleven. You see Target, opening new stores." Has New York become a city of too much regulation where only big businesses can thrive? Produced by Naomi Brockwell. Edited by Joshua Swain.

So-called “government regulations” are not what most people think that they are. They don’t curb “greedy corporations,” but entrench them. They don’t harm “rapacious companies” but strengthen them. They don’t “protect” consumers, but hobble them. Government should only be there to prosecute against fraud or aggression. Once government starts “regulating,” the worst of the worst rise to the top of both government and big business.

Script: Government regulations exist in various aspects of a business’ operation. Starting from working hours and worker conditions, and all the way to what product is a business even allowed to sell. Is the demand for further regulation of businesses justified? If I come to a pizza place, and I won’t like the pizza that they served me - I won’t go back there. If more people get bad service from this pizza place, then it will go bankrupt. An unsatisfied customer won’t go to the government to request regulation over pizza joints. Those who would, are those who have something to gain from that. The nature of business regulations is to grow and make entrepreneurship difficult. It’s what making life hard on existing businesses, and even harder on emerging ones. This situation gives an advantage to businesses and organizations that can succeed by lobbying the government. For example, when worker unions set a law on how much a minimum wage should be, many young people then face difficulties finding their first job. Big businesses can automate certain processes. For example, a large restaurant chain like McDonald’s can set up touch screens for ordering to save the cost of having employees, and that’s something that a small, local pizza joint owner will have a hard time doing. On the other hand, small businesses will go bankrupt, and the young and inexperienced will not be able to find a job so easily. And the small business owners can’t raise prices to compensate for the minimum wage law either, because the public doesn’t have an endless amount of money to spend on the product. If it was possible to raise prices without damaging revenues, business owners would have done that a long time ago. So how can we regulate businesses? The only regulation that should apply on a business is the market. Once a business starts selling their product for too much, they will go bankrupt. Once a business starts selling bad quality products, they will go bankrupt. And so on. If we let officials and bureaucrats run our businesses, then the number of officials and bureaucrats will only increase, and eventually it will become unprofitable to open new businesses. Of course, a business owner will have to honor agreements that they already made.

Uncle Sam needs taxpayer dollars to pay for things like schools, fire fighters, and the military. There are all sorts of different taxes: income taxes, payroll taxes and sales taxes just to name a few. But individuals aren’t the only ones who pay taxes—businesses pay income taxes too. Businesses that are set up as corporations pay taxes on their income at the US corporate tax rate of around 35 percent—one of the highest in the developed world. Countries like Ireland and Switzerland have corporate tax rates well under 25 percent, which can give companies based there a competitive advantage. But there’s another taxed group that we’re forgetting…small businesses. There are 29 million of them in the US and they employ nearly 56 million people. That’s a total of 85 million people dependent on the success of small businesses! Small businesses are most often set up as sole proprietorships, partnerships or another designation called an S-corp. But the money they make isn’t taxed at the corporate rate. The profits earned by these small businesses are “passed through” to the owner and counted as individual income on their personal tax return. That’s why you might hear small businesses referred to as “Pass-throughs.” These entrepreneurs can pay tax rates as high as 40 percent not including additional state and local taxes, that means many American small businesses are being taxed at a higher rate than businesses anywhere in the world. Why should you care? Because high taxes hurt small businesses ability to grow and expand, causing them to raise prices or even trim jobs to stay within their budget constraints. Lowering taxes for small businesses or “pass-throughs” results in the growth of small businesses—allowing them to provide more jobs and boost the economy for everyone. After all two thirds of all new jobs come from small businesses and lowering taxes can have a big effect on the entire economy for all Americans. So the next time you hear someone supporting an increase in tax rates on businesses, remember that very important group of small business owners and the 85 million people dependent on their success.

http://iam.ij.org/9uFUX3 How can Americans create private sector jobs? The solution to America's jobs problem lies not with budget-busting federally mandated "stimulus" programs. Instead, what is needed are specific reforms that wouldn't cost taxpayers, would create a broader tax base for cash-strapped cities and states, and would provide opportunity for millions of Americans who worry where their next paycheck is coming from. As demonstrated by a series of eight new reports issued in October 2010 by the Virginia-based Institute for Justice, one of the principal obstacles to creating new jobs and entrepreneurial activity in cities across the country is the complex maze of regulations cities and states impose on small businesses. IJ's "city study" reports are filled with real-world examples of specific restrictions that often make it impossible for entrepreneurs to create jobs for themselves, let alone for others. Chip Mellor, the president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, said, "If the nation is looking to the federal government to create jobs in America, it is looking in the wrong place. If we want to grow our economy, we must remove government-imposed barriers to honest enterprise at the city and state levels. Remove those barriers, and you will see a return to the optimism and opportunity that are hallmarks of the American Dream." IJ's eight reports document how irrational and anti-competitive regulations block entrepreneurship. More often than not, these government-imposed restrictions on economic liberty are put in place at the behest of existing businesses that are not shy about using government force to keep out competition. The Institute for Justice's city studies examine regulations imposed on a wide range of occupations in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Boehner says: As Americans across the country ask where are the jobs?, the last thing middle-class families and small businesses need from Washington is more taxes and more regulation. But thats exactly what they will get under the massive government takeover of health care President Obama recently signed into law. This week I received a note from Ken Cohen, President of Cohen Brothers, a small business in Middletown. Ken is concerned about reporting requirements in the new law that will place an enormous tax-filing burden on all small businesses to report payments of more than $600 for everything from raw materials to office supplies to the IRS. This new requirement represents an additional paperwork burden for small businesses already struggling to keep up with a never ending stream of government regulation. And this is only going to make it harder for small businesses to create jobs at a time when Washington ought to be making job creation easier for them. Republicans stood with the American people in opposition to a government takeover of our health care system. Now were fighting to repeal this job-killing bill and replace it with common-sense solutions to lower health care costs for middle-class families and help small businesses create jobs.
