North County Times

While many small-business owners in San Diego have heard about the health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, most lack a clear understanding of how the law will affect their business.

In San Diego County, 95 percent of all companies employ 50 or fewer workers and more than a third of the city’s workforce is employed by firms with fewer than 50 employees. These businesses value their employees and work to retain them by providing competitive benefits —- more than 44 percent of local small businesses offer some form of health care coverage.
