Small business and rising health care costs
Are you a startup or small business in Maryland? Are you fretting over whether you can afford to extend health care benefits to your employees or just frustrated at the escalating costs?
I'm hoping to talk to you today.
USPIRG, which does public-interest research, released a study today that looks at how small businesses are coping (or not) with health care costs. A couple hundred small companies across the U.S. were surveyed, including 21 in Maryland.
Next to employee salaries, health care costs comprise a huge chunk of overhead for businesses nowadays.
I'm hoping to talk to a few small-biz leaders today to get their side of the story. Feel free to shoot me an email at gus.sentementes(at)baltsun(dot)com.
