Small Business Majority publicó una nueva encuesta que demuestra el apoyo de propietarios de pequeñas empresas sobre las disposiciones clave en el Plan de Empleo Estadounidense. La encuesta muestra las prioridades de los empresarios, que incluyen mejoras a la infraestructura física, expansión de la banda ancha y la creación de incubadoras y centros de innovación comunitarias.

Small Business Majority's new survey reveals our nation's entrepreneurs are being harmed by a number of current anti-competitive practices. They're seeking commonsense policies that will create a more equitable business landscape and help them recover from the pandemic.
