Wednesday, September 04, 2019
Many small business owners do not have a firm grasp on the cost of an employee.  The cost is greater than the wage or salary you agree to pay the new employee.  The SBA's article by Barbara Weltman, an attorney and small business advocate, is worth the short read at the SBA's blog.

  
The SBDC is partially funded by the SBA.
