SBAM Leader Quoted in Detroit News Article “Congress’ health reform puts some employers in tight spot”

January 15, 2010

SBAM board member Jerry Grubb, owner of Wee Discover Child Daycare and Learning Center in Waterford, was quoted in today’s Detroit News article titled “Congress’ health reform puts some employers in tight spot.” Excerpt:

The House and Senate bills would provide sliding-scale tax credits for small businesses to help them pay for health coverage. But the Grubbs wouldn’t qualify because the House limits the credits to businesses with fewer than 25 employees, while the Senate restricts the premium subsidies to those with no more than 25 workers. “I can’t afford it,” said Grubb. “To remain profitable, you have to make up a loss somehow. “You can raise the price of your product or you can cut wages. How does that help my customers or my employees?”
