Congresswoman Beatty Celebrates Small Business Week
This year, National Small Business Week (NSBW) is celebrated May 5th through May 11th. For 55 years, NSBW has showcased the critical role American entrepreneurs and small business owners play in our economy. To mark the occasion, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement:
“Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. Besides creating two out of every three new jobs, small businesses also employ some 120 million Americans and make our neighborhoods more vibrant and better connected communities. That is why this National Small Business Week and all year long, I encourage my constituents and all Americans to join me in ‘shopping small.’ As a former small business owner, I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure America’s small businesses thrive and keep Main Street strong.”
