About Us

Save Local Businesses is a coalition dedicated to protecting and strengthening all sectors of small business, in particular the franchise business model, which is now under attack by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), an unelected regulatory body of five Washington bureaucrats.

 

What’s At Stake

The franchise model is in peril and all contractual business relationships could be at risk due to pending NLRB cases. Government officials in Washington are likely to adopt a new standard of “joint employer.” This could have serious negative consequences that will go beyond franchise businesses and affect any business that partners or subcontracts with outside vendors and suppliers. Upending the current, well-established, joint employer standard would cause uncertainty and disruption for many small business owners, force some small businesses to close and deter aspiring entrepreneurs from opening businesses and creating new jobs.
