Hey? What's going on here? How can this be?



U.S. Small-Business Owners' Hiring Intentions Plunge

quote:

PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. small-business owners expect to add fewer net new jobs over the next 12 months than at any time since the depths of the 2008-2009 recession, according to this November's Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index survey. Small-business owners' net hiring intentions for the next 12 months plunged to -4 in November, down from +10 in July and matching the previous record low recorded by the Wells Fargo/Small Business Index of -4 in November 2008.





Dang. What happened in November?
quote:

There was considerable improvement in small-business owners' hiring expectations during much of 2012, prior to the recent November plunge, but now expectations have deteriorated to tie the low recorded in 2008.


Remember Obama voters. You own it!

You know the earners of $250K and more that Obama is jelly of and wants to tax more, 75% of them are small business owners. Sounds like a rational and logical response to currently undefined future business costs.

Do you know how racist you sound? To put the blame on Obama for business owners not hiring people...why don't you just come out and say it. You hate black people.

Uncertainty is a stupid term for Business Confidence. If the President, the House and the Senate all announced that we are switching to a communist economic model that would = certainty. But it would not spur economic growth in the business world.

The business climate has nothing to do with certainty. It has to do with govt being perceived as business friendly or anti-business. This is the most anti-business adm in my lifetime.

If that was the frame we were dealing with, you would be correct. However, that is not the case.

I'm sometimes wonder if you ever actually worked or have been "retired" your entire adult life.

It is exactly the case. If Obama wins, taxes go up and business achieves Certainty. But that will result in further stunting growth. Therefore, the term 'certainty' is irrelevant. The reason it is used instead of Bus Con (from the 70s thru the 90s) is because the press does not like to paint politicians as anti-business. So the spin is "Well, business really doesn't care what Obama does as long as they have some certainty."

My step daughter's company just moved 50% of their employees to part time because of the new health care laws.

I live what is happening to small business everyday.

Obama is destroying small business. Obama is a downright liar saying that small business won't be effected; as I am literally watching it.

-A beauty salon makes more that $250K a year.
-Any mom and pop grocery store (in which NC still has) that sells convenience items and fresh pork and beef makes more than $250K a year.
-Seafood vendors on the corner out of a refrigerated truck make more than $250K a year
-HVAC companies make more than $250K a year
-Most construction companies make more than $250K a year.

Obama is purposefully killing America with his Robin hood marxism of class, racial warfare and cultural divide.

You idiots that voted for him and tote the dem party no matter what OWN IT! Don't be fooled that Obama will get away with this massive farce. Even the media are turning on him slightly.

Sparky was using sarcasm correct? No way they could be serious.

Hell, I posted an article the other day about Obamas vacation fiscal cliff and it was a parody and all but ONE posting in it thought it was real.

We live in strange times.

Uncewrtainty is still bad for business.

If you know your costs are going up 10% or 15% or whatever, you adjust your business model accordingly. If you can't still make a profit at that level, you shut down. Same goes for someone starting a new business. Obama's regulations and tax increases hurt specific businesses and specific industries that operate on tight profit margins.

But what happens if your costs are going up by somewhere between 10% and 75% and you don't have any way of knowing the exact amount? Then you can't put together a business nodel, so you simply don't take the risk.

I have to say I'm shocked that businesses aren't expanding hiring with the most anti private business President we have ever had recently re-elected for another four years.

ETA: Elections have consequences.

This. Most don't realize it, but Obama's "middle class" is not small business owners. His "middle class" is the dregs of society on welfare that he is trying to prop up with our tax dollars and the people making minimum wage type jobs.
