Medfield's Thomas Erb, like many other small-business owners, is not in favor of the government's attempt to impose more requirements and laws that will provide employees with added time-off benefits, i.e. more sick days.
Erb's stance on the issue, along with his local business, on West Street, was featured in Thursday's edition of the Wall Street Journal.
Sarah E. Needleman's story, "Sick Time Rules Re-Emerge," examines the debate over paid sick leave and its impact on small businesses. She asked Erb how additional time-off benefits would affect Electric Time.
"We have one person per job here," Erb told Needleman of his 30-employee clock-making firm. "If someone starts to abuse the sick [leave], the organization doesn't function."
