Market opportunities in the growth of the Hispanic consumers

The South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce wants to help our members reach out to the rapidly growing Hispanic market.  To do so we are forming a partnership with the South Carolina Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SCHCC) for communications between our two memberships and advocacy collaboration.  You might have already seen our social media making the SCHCC Weekly Connections available to you.  In the future you will also receive messages directly from the SCHCC.  Of course you will be able to opt-out of these messages. The Hispanic market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the state.  Don’t miss the potential for your business.

On Workers’ Compensation Insurance the Small Business Chamber and insurance industry actually agree: “Don’t fix what ain’t broke”

Insurance works best when everybody is in the pool.  That’s the way our state’s Workers’ Compensation Insurance works.  Every business with 4 or more employees must have workers’ comp on employees.  But now some giant companies want to pass legislation to allow them to pull out of our state system.   What will that mean for our small businesses?  Higher premiums because the pool of insured employees shrinks.  Competitive disadvantage because your big business competitors won’t have to pay workers’ comp premiums.    Even the insurance industry opposes this idea.  Read the story here and get outraged.
