Job Creators Network Statement on Tonight’s Presidential Debate

Alfredo Ortiz, CEO of Job Creators Network, issued the following statement on what small businesses are looking for in tonight’s presidential debate: 

“Small businesses are worse off than five years ago, and tonight’s debate provides a study in contrasts between these two periods. Under Biden, prices of goods and services have risen by 20 percent – far faster than average wages – and the price of gas has increased by 50 percent. The debate moderators should prioritize getting the candidates’ positions on finally taming inflation and the cost-of-living crisis that are destroying main streets nationwide. Given their size and struggles over the last few years, small businesses may be the demographic that decides this year’s election. The moderators and candidates should remember this fact and make sure to speak to their issues tonight.”
