Small business owners have more restrictions to grow their chosen business unlike the big end of town whose money and influence dictates government policy. Remember when Alan Jones when addressing the woolworths lackys and Jones claimed it was Ms Gillard that was the cause of her fathers passing

I strongly believe small and medium sized businesses need an effective mechanism to counter oligopoly, duopoly and monopoly market structures which are so prevelant within Australia.

I have been a small business proprietor twice and I want to see the "small guys" protected. I also believe that as we move forward into more mass production, people will crave the personal touch that a small business brings. Remember, every large business started as a small business!

People need to think about who is going to employ them and their children in the future. Big companies are not going to employ more people as their systems continually become more and more automated. I own a small business in a town being flooded with Coles, Woolies and Aldi stores. It has become ridiculous.

I am a small business operator & member of Small Business Australia with 1523 members. We saw the increased awareness of the needs of small business represented in the "effects test" as a step in the right direction for levelling the playingfield. We seek an active minister concentrating on the needs of micro/small/SME to $5million, under 50 employees. Small business needs all the help it can get from govt.
