Imagine if the Media Had as Much Sympathy for Small Business Owners as it Does for Federal Employees

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Ryan McMaken at the Mises Institute

    During this partial government shutdown, it’s become nearly impossible to avoid news articles, and segments on television and radio outlining the many ways that federal employees are apparently suffering financially as a result of the partial government shutdown.

    The stories are very diverse in topic. Some take a “human interest story” angle, simply looking at how the daily lives of some of these employees have been affected. Others look at the apparent injustice of the fact that some workers are “being told to work without pay.” Still other suggest that the lack of federal paychecks will drive down economic growth figures. The number of ways to cover the story is quite large, and editors and journalists are apparently looking to see how many different options they can explore.

    In truth, of course, virtually no one is working “without pay” since Congress has already approved a plan to provide nearly all affected workers with back pay. Nor is is mentioned that, on average, federal workers earn 17 percent more than private sector workers of similar education levels. Also not mentioned is the fact that the unemployment rate is at a historically low level — and thus changing careers is easier now than usual.

    None of this, of course, is emphasized in the many media stories on the topic. Indeed, the usual slant of the articles is that federal workers somehow suffer more greatly than private sector workers.

    Just imagine, though, if the media took a similar interest in small business owners and the self-employed in general. Would we then hear about the struggles of how the local Subway franchisee struggles to make payroll in the face of government regulations and taxes? Would we hear about how the local courier company with 23 employees had to cut wages — and thus lose some of his best employees — because tariffs (i.e., taxes) on autos has driven up his costs? Would we hear about how a new increase in the minimum wage forced the local mom-and-pop hardware store to increase prices, thus driving down revenues?

    Here are some of the news leads we might see see if this were the case:

    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Small business owners have cut back hours and laid off workers as the result of new minimum wage requirements that went into effect last week. Lisa Cooper, a single mother of three who opened Bob’s Bar and Grille six years ago noted she’ll have to lay off some staff and raise prices on some menu items. “It will definitely take a cut out of our revenues,” Cooper said. “It looks like I’ll have to cancel music lessons for the kids this year.”


    SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) — Mandatory paid family leave mandates have left some local business owners scrambling for ways to cover employee absences. New mandates passed by the state legislature went into effect last month. Rob Hunnicut, the broker-owner of Oak Realty is unsure how his employees will react. “This is a burden that will fall on all my employees,” Hunnicut said, after a staff meeting Thursday morning. “When some employees take paid family leave, that means everyone else in the office has to pitch in to do the same amount of work. Even worse, since we have to keep paying the employees on leave, we can’t afford to bring in temp workers.” Hunnicut noted he has often provided paid leave in the past when business was brisk. “But now things are different,” Hunnicut said. “With these rigid mandates, everyone who’s left in the office, including me, will just have to do with less, including those of us who already have small children at home.”

    You get the idea.

    Other possibilities for stories might include:

    • Contractors and employees who suffered lost revenue and wages because the local Civil Rights Commission shut down a business for not making a cake for a gay wedding. The owners and 8 employees become unemployed, and 3 suppliers lose a substantial amount of income.
    • A local hair salon owner — an immigrant from Korea, and father of 4 — is fined and goes out of business because a court determined he must make major costly renovations for the benefit of disabled customers. The owner and 13 employees are put out of work.
    • New health care mandates for employees force small local employers to put off new hires for an additional six months. This means worse front-end service since there are fewer employees. This allows the local big-box store, which can take advantage of economies of scale, to provide better customer service, driving the small firm out of business.

    This isn’t to say that the media never covers these topics. But it is fairly safe to say that beyond publications intended specifically for business readers, ordinary media outlets have rarely showed much interest in examining the plight of small business owners in a way similar to how they’ve been covering the effect of the current shutdown on federal workers. Rarely does mainstream coverage emphasize the daily problems that small business owners face in providing payroll for workers (and themselves), meeting customer demands, and keeping the lights on.

    Moreover, business owners face these sorts of problems daily — and every time a government hands down a new regulation tax or mandate — while federal employees rarely face the sorts of uncertainties over income that are common in the private sector.

      1. Screw em all (the fed employees). Wish I could get all this time off w/ back pay. What a scam on the American taxpayer. And the fake media is lying about them not being able to make their mortgage, rent, car, etc…payments. “ALL” the lenders are giving them extentions (with no added interest or penalties). Even my credit union sent me a notice to call them if I am a govt employee that can’t make my payment. I wish Trump could just fire all the fed employees that he feels are not needed (regulators, TSA, IRS, ATF, UPS, etc…). That would cut govt by 40% right out of the gate. The we would have plenty of money to build the wall….and regain our lost liberty from this tyrannical evil govt empire.
        P.s. Execute the top democrats (Clinton, Obama, Pelozi, Schumer, etc..) for treason by firing squad.!!!!!

      2. This is a much bigger subject than first meets the eye; that the media can mold public opinion by merely not reporting or underreporting.

        For example, during the forced starvation of ten million white Christians during the prelude to WW2 the media failed to report what was happening, and to this day the subject is ignored or minimized, while the starvation inside German and Polish concentration camps is seen in media documentaries, news clips, movies and TV shows all the time. This creates a distorted view.


        • (Holodomor)

          If you won’t starve the Communists out, they will gladly starve you out.

      3. The democrats have already shows what they think about the American public with pushing for a 70% tax rate.

        Slaves to the government. Bend over.

        • On the CHINA front:

          Gee whiz, didn’t someone here say months ago that the debt in CHINA was a much bigger problem for the global economy than rising US interest rates ???

          Didn’t someone here say months ago, that CHINESE companies would default generating a massive downward spiral in massively over leveraged CHINA; possibly leading to civil arrest there ??? Who was that Masked Man ??? Yeah, it’s in the archives.

          So it begins. 🙂

          • Just another example of the problems coming to CHINA:


            50,000 layoffs in itself is not a lot in the scheme of things for a country with 1.3 billion people but coupled with other events happening there its a big deal.

            Unemployed Chinese might someday assemble in Tiananmen Square, or its equivalent. 50,000 hungry workers IS a big deal.

            When a couple of hundred thousand federal workers are permanently furloughed to cleanse the SWAMP, the District of Criminals might see its own violence. 🙂

        • Occasio has suggested a 90% tax. She’s a fruitcake.

          • Yes she is a fruit cake, but to be fair, she suggested a 70% tax rate on income OVER $10 million a year; NOT a 90% tax rate. While the IDEA of high tax rates is philosophically anathema to Americans in general, who makes more than $10 million in income a year ???

            Yeah, tax the shit out of the Global Elite who have been sucking the American worker, family, & taxpayer dry for the past 30 years.

            Call it: REPARATIONS TO THE MIDDLE CLASS !!! 🙂

          • The Democrats in the House are cocky right now.
            They want to pretend that Trump is a lame duck.
            In reality, the House is the lame duck. Trump can still push things forward without them.
            When Mueller wraps up the bogus investigation and Rosenstein leaves, look out.
            Rosenstein already resigned, so it’s getting C-L-O-S-E.
            ALL of the upper echelon of the Democrat Party WILL BE WIPED OUT.
            All the big names will have shit on their faces very soon.
            It’s difficult to launch an exploratory committee for President if under federal indictment.
            Doesn’t look too kosher.
            If you think they hate Trump right now, oh buddy, just wait.

          • Just think of all the mentally retarded satanic un-Americans who voted for her.

      4. The media reports crimes committed by white people when the victim is in a protected class either by race or transgender, and repeatedly emphasizes the fact that the perpetrator is white. But if the perpetrator is a transgender and or of color, such is not emphasized if reported at all.

        Thus the public is unaware that in most crimes, the victim is white and the perpetrator is black or Hispanic except when both perpetrator and victim are both black, which is still the most usual situation.

        Yet because of the way crime is reported many people fear “white supremacists” which in most cases are harmless unless under a direct threat in which case they have been known to use violence in self defense but again the media fails to report what precipitated the white person’s violence against a non-white.

        Selective reporting is a power.


        • The fake news media and these leftists are intentionally trying to destroy white people.

          They have declared themselves enemies of whites.

          So to a leftist is perfectly fine to attack any white because they claim we have this mythical white privilege.

          Reverse that. Aha, that is exactly like the Ku Klux Klan attacking every black.

          • Maranatha, the left all the time uses the terms “white privilege”, “white supremacy”, and “white nationalism” but they never say what they mean by these terms. I’ve researched them and decided they’re just a totally false concept. Just part of their illegitimate campaign against white people.

            • John B. Wells talked about the origin of this on Episode 1052 (in the intro which is free) at www dot caravantomidnight dot com.

              Apparently an exiled commie, in South Africa, came up with the idea in the 1970s. For anyone that hasn’t been paying attention, South Africa was infested with neo-Marxists which are now in power.

            • Its straight up naked divide an conquer by focusing all others against whites. A program of white genocide in fact.

        • Honeypot, good points. While MSM won’t report on black-on-white crime, the USDOJ does publish an official study every year on crime statistics from their Bureau of Justice Statistics. The vast majority of all crime in the US is perpetrated by black males and the DOJ study verifies what I’m saying. Very interesting reading. Not to mention most of the trash locked up for everything in my area are black males.

      5. I don’t feel sorry for the government workers missing their paychecks. Those jobs are decent paying cake jobs and I haven’t heard any stories about homeless government workers. Many of us should be so lucky to have such a job. Fire them all to greatly reduce the waste because most of the jobs are make work or clock watcher marathons.

        • Same here. I am a veteran and the employees at the VA are losers. They can’t be fired. They don’t even bother being nice to veterans (some of them). Will they get fired for being rude? Hahaha! Heck, the VA is the one place where you can get away with murder and not be sued and not be fired.

          I can’t stand government employees. Nothing but tit suckers.

        • If any of these federal workers had a single prepper bone in their body, they’d have some cash stashed (ten dollar bills in a #10 can), some money in the bank to pay the mortgage and taxes, food in the freezer, and long term stored food it the basement.

          They would have no issue, it’s not like this is a surprise, government shutdowns have been common. They are predictable, like natural disasters that I prep for.

          I have zero empathy for stupid people that can’t grasp the way history echoes into the future.

          Prepping isn’t just for conservatives living in the wilderness. It works for every sane human.

      6. Media are nothing but misfortune opportunist. All abord the band wagon lol. Way i see it we have done just fine without the tax leaches working so guess we diddent need them after all. Besides that one thing they are not saying anything about is the fact that they can collect unemployment but you dont hear a word about that..soooo fook every one of them just fire them and their 26 weeks of unemployment pay can be their severence pay.

      7. MSM = propaganda spin cycle for the CFR and bankster establishment even fox is fake news

      8. Money saved can build one hell of a nice wall. Could even double wall it with patrols driving between the 2 walls. Now that would be nice.

      9. The leftists demonized every mom and pop business as some sort of exploiter of workers.

        Meanwhile they took money from George Soros!. Do what!

        Some small family business on paper may be worth 1-2 million but it’s not liquid. The asset is tied up in property and inventory and supplies. And it’s actual value is only realized when the business is sold. But insanely, there were leftists calling these folks the 1 percent!!!

        NOPE. The real Elite are the 0.01% that own 80-90 % of all wealth like the liberal darlings like Oprah.

        • The Rothschilds might be worth 350 billion but nobody really knows as they have intentionally paid off the fake news media to kee their name out of the news.

          The leftists strain at gnats and swallow camels.

          • 8 men have as much wealth as 3.6 billion people.

            That has zero to do with a mom and pop business that is worth 2 million on paper.

            The richest own 50% of all wealth.

            That was NOT true in 1990. Leftist policies made the poor become impoverished through free trade and inflationary policies. And then the leftists made rich men into the ELITE as they consolidated wealth. Yet the leftists bow down to them.

            One wealthy man decided to give up making even more money for four years and instead work essentially for free to restore America to prosperity. And the leftists LOATHE and ridicule him.

            But Trump is the only powerful one opposing the Elite.

        • Maranatha, Obamacare probably drove out of business as many mom-and-pops as wallyworld has.

          • If I told you how little healthcare insurance was when I was a young husband and father, most wouldn’t believe it. But then we all were healthy with pregnancy being the only real expense or well baby care which mostly were routine vaccinations. We were all healthy.

      10. Obama put it best when he told a small business owner “You didn’t build this!”. If it wasn’t the owner, who was it? All of the sympathetic coverage of the Federal workers is usually turned around to make Trump appear as a cold-hearted human being.

      11. Government shutdown should last as long as Trump is in office. Maybe by then the deepstate cockroaches will have abandoned ship. Cut off the funds that these parasites rely on.It is very simple. The CIA and deep state run the main stream media. Project Mockingbird. Remember Schumer threatening Trump with the intelligence agencies when he first entered office. Get rid of the corrupt deep state in media and government and times will get better.

      12. This why I ignore mainstream media and shop local businesses. Don’t feed the beast!

      13. POTUS is going to make an announcement tomorrow and no doubt will comment on the Rogue Pelosi who is acting like she can defy him. That sounds like sedition to me, that she would attempt to circumvent the State of the Union address.

        Additionally he will no doubt discuss the Southern Border.

        But what may surprise the bulk of Americans is the FACT that since its been almost a month since the government shutdown began, the president then can submit an official Reduction in Force plan (RIF) to the Office of Management and Budget, and then in 2-4 weeks start draining the swamp. That means in March, such swamp drain’ may start.

        The worst resisters are in the Senior Executive Service which is at least 70% hardcore Democrats appointed by nepotism. Ordinarily theycannot be eliminated even by poor performance.

        These 8,000 folks cost 1.2 trillion each year. Do we need them?

        • This will cause the worst Democrat outrage and so expect Pelosi and Schumer to try to roadblock any RIF.

          So what may happen is the Democrats have to cave on the Wall and illegal alien amnesty…

          …face losing their spies in the SES swamp. The latter are the ones who acquire major donor fundraising to the DNC, so I suspect these are sacrosanct to the DNC. That is their gravytrain.

      15. I had a dry cleaning business for 15 years.
        Dry cleaning fluid started out at $3 / gallon and with govt regs the price went to $30/gallon. That was big bite for a small business in a short period of time. I struggled at the end and sold out.

      16. what are you aholes droaning on about??? what the F does white supremacy have to do with small business woes??? this is about the F-ing fed making life hard on small biz!

      17. Jesus the Good Shepherd
        (Psalm 23:1-6; Ezekiel 34:11-24)
        1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. 6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
        7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
        10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

        Jesus is without guile. He is not trying to use subterfuge but acts as the ultimate Altuist in your behalf. He guards the sheep and the door to the sheep. Jesus is the Good Shepherd.

        But Lucifer and his minions are the opposite. They come to steal, kill, and destroy. It’s not enough to take your private property, but they take your very existence ie your being, and then they seek to destroy you …eternally.

        That is the Democrats and the Illuminati.

        Look at verse one. It seems redundant in English but in the Greek it is clearer.
        ht tps://
        ht tps://

        This word for “robber” is lestes and it means a marauder who not only steals as a thief, but violently keeps stealing over and over.

        “3027 lēstḗs – a thief (“robber”), stealing out in the open (typically with violence ). 3027 /lēstḗs (“a bandit, briard”) is a thief who also plunders and pillages – an unscrupulous marauder (malefactor), exploiting the vulnerable without hesitating to use violence.”

        It is absolutely immoral and malevolent. There is no end to their theft and it becomes extortion.

        The Democrats want to take what you got and keep taking what you got perpetually.

        On the other hand, Jesus came to the Earth so you would have life in abundance. That word abundance is perosson and it means:

        htt ps://

        “Cognate: 4053 perissós (an adjective, derived from
        4012 /perí , “all-around, excess”) – properly all-around, “more than” (“abundantly”); beyond what is anticipated, exceeding expectation; “more abundant,” going past the expected limit (” more than enough . . . “). See 4052 ( perisseuō ).
        4053 /perissós (“all-around, equidistant”) in John 10:10
        Jn 10:10: “I came in order that they [believers] might continuously have life, even that they may
        continuously have it all-around ( 4053 /perissós ).”

        It means Jesus came that you would have life beyond your expectations: a continuous stream of blessings from YAHWEH. Being perpetualy filled with life.

        The word life here is zoen and since YAHWEH means I AM ie YAHWEH is the source of all life, that YAHWEH gives the believer eternal perpetual life.

        Lucifer destroys life.
        YAHWEH gives eternal life.

      18. Owning a small biz is really hard nowadays and although I chose to do it, I will most likely go to on-line only next year. Its sad and I know I will have my local people bummed out but every year I am hit with expenses that are rising faster than I can keep up with. For instance, my Triple net (NNN)bill from the landlord has doubled the past 2 years. I essentially have to take all my profits from Christmas and set it aside for the dreaded bill in January. We are in an older complex with little maintenance but the City taxes just gut us every year as they are really high in Texas. Add in all the other expenses and there are days I wonder why I am even doing this. I love my store, my customers, the vibe, but I can’t keep up with taxes doubling every year.

      19. What POTUS should do is give the DNC notice that he is ejecting illegal aliens and DACA the children of illegal aliens IMMEDIATELY unless the Border funding is totally agreed upon ie not just 5 billion but the entire border wall is fully funded.

        Immediate removals should commence and they have 48 hours to comply.

        Then if the DNC disagrees then immediately begin the Reduction in Force of government employees AND illediately eject these illegal aliens.

        POTUS’ approval ratings would soar! Already since the government shutdown began, there has been a huge increase in Hispanic Americans approval of POTUS (a 19 point jump). They are being harmed by DNC tactics.

        Someone ought to make a video of a flood of illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande because while Duran Duran were making propaganda praising illegal alien Hispanic beauty (and likely worse and subversive and homosexual), then the reality was a flood of drug money and opioid deaths and stds and influenza and tuberculosis contagion. It was really about theft of government resources that were unbudgeted. It was genuinely about the reqlity drug cartel violence like sexualassault and prostitution and kidnappings and executions.

      25. -Nietzsche said “Everything the State says is a lie, everything it has it has stolen”.
        -Rand said “Gov’t is nothing more than institutionalized mob rule”, she also said “A gov’t is the most dangerous to Man’s rights, it holds a legal monopoly of force against legally disarmed citizen victims”.
        -Paine said “It is the duty of every patriot to protect his country from his gov’t”.
        -Jefferson said “I have sworn upon the altar of GOD eternal hostility against every form of tyranny against the mind of Men”, he also said “I believe banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that spending money to paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is swindling the future on a large scale”.
        -Buffet said “I could end the deficit in five minutes, you just pass a law that says anytime there is a deficit of more than 3 % of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are in eligible for re-election”.

        -Other quotes are: “The State is an instrument by which power over the herd is wielded for the benefit of the few”, and “The ideal citizen of a tyrannical State is a person who bows in silent obedience for the status of a cared-for animal”.
        There are thousands of great poignant quotes, but there is no need in citing more here, we all see the picture. These great people understood far more than the clowns running the country now for TPTB; this country is purposely being ran into the ground. It is beyond broke, it is bankrupt, it is insolvent. The more debt it runs up the tyranny we will see, eventually to the suspension of our civil rights so that they can maintain a grasp on the levers of power.
        The only reasonable response is SECEDE NOW !!!

      26. Maranatha, thank you for what you share … especially the Truth from the Word…

        • If every Christian would share the Gospel…as is their primary duty, then JESUS could turn this around. Don’t keep your light undera bushel basket, but put it on a lampstand.

          When you are judged, and Jesus asks you, “If you believed in me, why did you not ever speak up and witness?”, then what will you say in reply?

          “I was too bashful. I was too afraid. I didn’t want to offend anyone.”

          If your neighbor’s house is on fire, are you going to intercede, or let them burn in the flames???

          Quit being cowards.

            Watch what happens when a famous evangelist asks a devout Christian if she ever witnesses.

        Ocasio and several Democrats are all being interviewed and keeping bringing this factoid up from the past.

        I would be curious if it actually happened due to tax loopholes. Just because something used to on the books, does NOT mean it actually worked that way.

        The extreme leftists and the Democrats are no longer just folks of a different political bent who might act in bipartisan ways on legislation to help Americans.

        Nope. They are just satanic and ultimately it will come down to us versus them. If you think otherwise, watch that video where the leftists demonize the word “family”.

        Or watch what happens when pro-life teenagers from Kentucky are vilified as racists when in fact, bigots were hurling insults and violent threats at them. And now both the news media and wacko priests and Hollyweird are trying to incite violence against young people.

        • The American Civil War 2.0 has already begun when 15 year olds are attacked who did nothing wrong but marched peacfully for the lives of babies.

          How is that a crime?

          One day, it will be your kids and in your city. These kids are already the tip of the spear and they did not lose their cool or back down.

          I think President Trump should give them a medal.

            Watch leftists melt down when Kentuckian Christian teenagers dare to…wait for it…smirk at a leftist! How dare they! How racist! What nazis!

            Smirking now equates to being a Nazi! Total buffoon leftists are calling for these catholics to be thrown into concentration camps, not realizing the immense IRONY of then calling these innocent kids …Nazis. It’s crazy.

            The rest of the story is hundreds, maybe thousands of leftists are now liable for slander and lawyers are signing up to defend the Kentuckians. I hope ever teenager so vilified gets enough money to fully pay for college.

            • Look at the gulf between normal pro-life Christian conservatives versus human excrement scum satanic leftists marching for dismemberment.
