Yearning to Breathe Free: Wanted: Ohio Small Business Appreciation Week (...or month, or year...): "we are ranked near the bottom in terms of our friendliness to small business ; one of the highest taxed states ; and one of the worst states for economic freedom . And what’s worse, we continue to drop year after year in each of these categories."
Jason makes a lot of good points here. Personally, I'd lay it at the door of gangsterism in the political establishment in general, and proceed to clean house from that perspective. Does anybody know the proportions of payroll of government jobs, nonprofit sector jobs, small-business jobs, and large-corporation jobs? Is there anything else I've forgotten, in ways people are employed in making a living?
