A 48-Year RECORD Has Been SHATTERED – Many Left Hopeless
(RepublicanJournal.org) – It’s no secret that times are tough in our economy right now. Inflation has been at record levels for a number of months, and economic growth projections are getting less and less optimistic. Many experts believe we could be in a recession before the end of the year. Now, it looks like these unfavorable conditions are leaving their mark on the small business sector.
According to a new report from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), sentiment among small business owners about their immediate future is at its lowest level in nearly five decades. The NFIB reported its findings were the most negative in its entire 48-year history.

So, what’s causing this trend? Inflation is a major factor, with 28% of small business owners reporting high prices are the single biggest problem they’re contending with right now. That number is slightly down from the 32% recorded in April, which was the highest figure for that statistic since 1980.
The other major areas of concern for small business owners include labor shortages and supply-chain disruptions. According to the poll, just over half of respondents claimed they had job openings they could not fill, while 39% said supply shortages were causing major issues in their business.
