:: Half Of All Small Businesses to Cut Hours

Unease around Obamacare appears to be increasing among small business owners, according to a recent survey from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Almost half of small businesses said they were concerned about the law in general, up from 42 percent in January.
