Business Coalition Fights Back Against Biased Labor Board
By Connor D. Wolf, Daily Caller
On Tuesday, 73 business owners joined forces to push back against a new federal rule that could significantly alter the franchise model.
The Coalition to Save Local Businesses was formed to fight a National Labor Relations Board decision which makes franchisors joint-employers with the individual franchisees they contract out to. The coalition included employers who operate franchises like Golden Corral, Two Men and a Truck and Choice Hotels. Though the decision has not yet be implemented, business leaders and congressional Republicans have fought against it, arguing that it will overturn decades of established law and destroy many small businesses.
