Small businesses continue to struggle with rising healthcare costs, according to the National Small Business Association’s 2018 Politics of Small Business Survey.
The survey, conducted in May in June among 1,421 small-business owners, found controlling healthcare costs was the most common small-business issue brought to elected officials.
Forty percent of respondents said they contacted elected officials about the issue. That’s higher than the 38 percent who contacted elected officials about a local issue or the 37 percent who contacted elected officials about tax reform.
