Rep. Waters Celebrates Small Business Week

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued a statement on the impact of small businesses in recognition of Small Business Week 2019:

“I am so proud to celebrate all of the small businesses throughout our thriving community and across the country. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. In fact, 99.9 percent of all U.S. businesses are small businesses, and 47.5 percent of American workers are employed by small businesses in their community. The state of California is no different. Our state is home to 4 million small businesses— 2.1 million of which are minority-owned— that employ 48.8 percent of California workers. As the Chair of the House Committee on Financial Services, I will continue to fight for public policies that encourage the growth and expansion of small businesses, strengthen the Small Business Administration, and support small business owners, whose creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit are the heart and soul of our economy and the American Dream.”
