The National Restaurant Association today released the following statement regarding the House passage of a comprehensive jobs package that includes the Save American Workers Act,
which would restore the definition of a full-time workweek under the current health care law to 40 hours, and the America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act, which would allow small business owners to expense up to $500,000 of investments in new equipment and property per year:
“We appreciate the House voting on a comprehensive jobs bill that will help get our economy back on track,” said Scott DeFife, Executive Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs, National Restaurant Association. “As the nation’s second largest private sector employer, the restaurant industry accounts for 10 percent of our nation’s workforce.
Meaningful legislation like the Save American Workers Act and the America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act will provide much needed assistance to restaurateurs across the country looking to grow their businesses, stimulate their local economies and most importantly, create more jobs. We urge the Senate to move quickly on passage so businesses large and small can continue to pave the way for our future workforce.”
