33. Have any of you ever had to worry about making a payroll?
Knowing that your employees and their family is couting on that paycheck to put food on the table will cause you many a sleepless night when times are tough. For most its agonizing to have to let someone go because you can't afford to pay them.

While both letters are full of hyperbole, most business owners CARE about their employees. Especially small buisness.

You know, it doesn't hurt for employees to know what sort of expenses it costs to run a business. One of the biggest con jobs our government ever did was to impose a "hidden" tax on workers via payroll taxes. I'd love it for an employee to see all the taxes and fees (lets not even count benefits) that are being paid to government(s) on their behalf. The pitchforks would come out!
