Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy.

There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work <hes>. I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on <hes> at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't.

"We appreciate you taking some time to learn about our union. So let's get to the news on February six twenty twenty the US House of Representatives passed the protecting the right to organize act of two thousand nineteen also known as the Pro Act or HR twenty four seventy four. In one opinion piece on the hill. It was described as one of the most significant pieces of labor legislation to come before Congress in years. Among other things the proactive would make it substantially easier for workers to form and join unions and for those unions to negotiate meaningful contracts with employers by extending rights to workers who have been excluded from the reach of labor law and introducing real penalties for businesses. That break those laws. When Workers Attempt to organize a union companies would be required to bargain in good faith with labor unions and it would reinforce a union's right to use the most powerful weapon they have to strike against their employers. The PRO act would also help to end employee misclassification such as those with X. P. O. Were they have repeatedly insisted that port truck drivers who work for them are actually contractors not employees and thus are not entitled to even the minimum wage never mind benefits or workers. Compensation workers demand to be treated with respect and dignity in the workplace and this legislation would allow that to happen now. It's up to the Senate where COMPANION BILL S Thirteen O. Six has been introduced but is unlikely to move forward without extreme pressure.

"It because I love my job so much in that sounds really cheesy but I think it's a huge advantage in it. I've seen it come into effect an especially positive ways when somebody's sick when they have a family emergency it's not a UC. You know I had someone pass away but I have to be back to work tomorrow. It's I I think it's the care side of when for time that I love. I think it's a great great perk. The one perk that I took advantage of negativity was the the Free Candy. which is the free is fantastic? I ate too much of it. But there's no such thing as too much candy. Thanks a lot. I two that I love is a keeper has to do with communication the fact that if I have something really burning I can share it with my leader an I can even go as high as slacking one of our executives and share my thoughts. That's a perk. That's not so much sold in in the interview process but the fact that we have that type of environment here where I can communicate for my heart to my leader and even to an executive in an engine even shared something with our chief people officer that we can even step directly to them and share thoughts. I I try to take advantage of that as much as I can. And if it's if it's not cherry pop tarts then everything is a lie. It's not cherry pop tarts because also I'm off that bandwagon the downward downward spiral a stopped. But if I would spiral of Cherry bomb stop it. Has you heard it here first. Yes so if there's so many you're you're asking the person that just crying tears one. No I'm not giving you just one but I cried. Happy Tears in my review yesterday because really the thing that I'm most grateful four since I've been here has been like the growth I've had in two years. It's GonNa and just thinking about it again but I mean I'm with a leader that really supports me and Wants me to do my best all the time and through the growth. I've had here and her trust in me to do those things. I've actually grown personally to like like I feel more confident in my own skin standing here so I mean that's something that didn't cost anything. Just a great leader shouts Laura Collins But like a great great leader power to grow trust to do that. Those are worth more than anything else I get but if you WanNa talk about other things. I'm addicted to the caffeine. That is something. I don't expect it when it's broken. I don't get down the dumpster. One hundred Andrew down or Jenny but basically those are the things that I probably take advantage of the most growth and soda so I think Well first of all. I didn't know we had cherry pop tarts so my answer is fluid I didn't know we had peanut butter and Jelly so so I I reserve that. I didn't know we had a secret. Magic cabinet at the left of the kitchen. Respectful like there will be exploration later. I think it's something go to be very light here. It's something that Jenny reference there. We have a free style coke machine in the kitchen and it allows you to make and I it so many comedy like hundred and fifty different kinds of soda and I don't even like soda that much but I can go if I want and get a glass of ginger lemon diet coke and that's my go-to because it's the hardest defied you literally have to like four buttons to get there and Andrew. Andrew just made the face I got some today and someone looked it up like why are you. I'm doing that I'm like because I can't because it's there I feel like I gave you the look that you gave jetties crocs o just like two and everyone knows that look I did promise a two part question if you have any a perk if anything in the world very quickly what what. What perk would you want? If I could make get up. I would ask that every family. So every employee would have one solid week that they would spend with their family. It would just literally literally be. I need you to disconnect. I need you to remember. You know I feel like I'm forcing this on. But I feel like people work for their family whether it just be them in their spouse or them commended for baby them in there. You know the parents I I would think there'd be so cool. Just be like what are your working at home because going a little vacation spend time with their family. That's kind of like. Oh a instant y you work as hard as you do. I guess how about you Jenny. Well after that answer anything I say is going down on all Sir petty if I could create a worksite perk mine well mine's a little biased. Because I love art and I believe that everyone has an innate ability to create my road be to have a room. That's pretty much might look like a kindergarten classroom. It's full of art supplies anything that you could use to go back. To taking breaks Florida's art is a great way to to let the brain rest and have fun and and our actually even refocus so it would be a big giant art room where people could come play full disclosure. I color at a kindergarten level so I would in writing. So that's perfect. It's it's excellent for you cowering. Lots of coloring. I A perk which is very simple. I go up and down the stairs to the support team to the product team. Marketing Team I would get a slide. We would love. I think a slide tackle crash pad at the bottom. Be Fantastic. Great Okay for me. It's going to sound super cheesy but I actually am very fulfilled and I'm happy so that just brings us to the end of this where we can all agree that happiness in the workplace is very important and there's lots of ways to get there So if you're out there and you've got a small business. There's lots of things that don't cost anything to keep people happy. And I think putting focus because there whether it's in a role or any kind of effort is going to be worth your time and considered an investment because you'll get a return on it so that's it for today guys. Thank you for being here. We really appreciate it. Thank you very much for having been Q.. And see happy..

Yeah. I mean, thank you. Also, like the double cross is so weird. Because like if you try to think of it, you're like, how does that work? But it's like a knee and then an ankle under the CAF. Yeah. It's like it's just a little behind like you're doing what Matt can do it. But the experience like when you do it. It's everything you would imagine. I can't explain it. You know? Tried try now I have weirdly, flexible ankles, okay week. So they. Yeah. I can do it feel like I feel very secure my crotch feels very protected but rooted perhaps rooted, but I also feel like to sit like that for like an hour would get a little bit uncomfortable. It's hard on the knees. I have like a steel plate in my leg. So when I do it where are you going to pop out? It's like the tension at home. If you. About about steel police or call your doctor. Yeah.

Someone wants gave me a tiny bottle of white diamonds. It's like a joke gifts. And it is like if you just open the bottle at your house will stink for. It's a lot has lasting power though. That's why it's such an important fragrance because a lot of times the celebrity ones are like they're just like sugar water. Right. And they don't they don't have any. It's just like it's so it doesn't stick around for that long. Yeah. Perfume I ever smells like when I was just walking through like, a Bloomingdale's or whatever..

But the best way to stay connected is on our Facebook page. That's Facebook dot com slash Nick de show. Okay. Before the break. Jim and Colin talked about mid nineties, which is the new film by district by Jonah hill. Now, let's welcome Jim back. Jim welcome back. Thank you again, Colin. Welcome back. Thank you. Okay. Yeah. I wasn't really on board with this one as much. Did I miss some some of the things I admired about it? And some of the things that bothered me about it. Now, you guys both mentioned the the use of language in here. And I think it's a little excessive, quite frankly. And you know, I'm not a prude by any stretch of the imagination. But I thought it was a little excessive here and. Got a little bit numbing after a while. It'd be like, okay. And I also did not like the ending of this movie at all. I was troubled by many like the relationship between the brothers. That was really troubled by a lot of that stuff. I thought the of the casting of the of the knowns was was good because there is a real authenticity to it. These guys these are these kids really are skaters and they come from that world, and it feels lived in. And. I know the Jonah hill is very very very proud about this movie because I've seen him on on talk shows talking about it. And there's a real sense of that he that he you know, that he loves the story that he's telling like, there's a real sense that he cares. A lot about about what he's about the story that he's telling hearing about the kids, you know, the the the main the main kid is good, you know, they're all pretty natural. And that that's that's the the obvious. Obviously the avenue that he went down. I just didn't. I just I I have very little patience for for for, you know, what was happening in the movie, and it's a very short movie, but it felt long and again. The ending is just is is not good. As a direct to'real debut. It's an interesting. It's an interesting start. I guess I'm more I lean more towards a gym on this one. So I'm not quite recommending it. So anyway, but it'd be interesting to see where where we're Jonah hill goes from here. And again, you're the soundtrack. The soundtrack is great. He did, you know choose a lot of terrific music from that time period and. To get those guys to compose the score for was like a dream come true for him. And it's and it's a good score. It's not it's not a bad movie is just not, you know, just not not my Cup of tea. So all right. What do we have next week? Next week. We've got we've got. Bohemian rhapsody. Those are the two big ones. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Nutcracker nutcracker and the four realms right nutcracker in the fourth which I'm guessing will not have Nazi rats. Quite like, the Andrei Konchalovsky masterpiece. A few years ago. So we got that. And then the box office for this week against our star star stars born still doing fantastic business, but Halloween again was number one with thirty two million dollars and. And not a shocker. No, no, nobody. I mean, it's like the weekend leading up to Halloween. So of course, it was going to be there and next week. I would imagine it won't be number one. My guess is bohemian rhapsody is going to be number one next week. But Halloween thirty two million number number two. A star is born fourteen million which is just chugging along. And making a lot of money. Number three for some reason. People are still going to see venom. And I don't I don't quite. I don't quite understand. It really don't get this at all. I mean, I just can't figure this one out. I mean, I saw it. And it's nothing I can't word of mouth. I are all of our people going to. And if it's sold out they go see venom. I didn't. That's what's happening. I don't know. It makes no sense. I mean, seriously, if you know for the last three weeks, I've been going why why are people going to see venom? I don't I just don't get it. I don't get the number four is the goosebumps sequel goosebumps to haunted Halloween seven point five million number five hundred killer the submarine movie. Six point six million number six they hate you give with five million number seven one of the saddest stories of the year as far as I'm concerned is the is the bombing of I man, I just. I blame. I think universal is absolutely to blame on this one. Why they shot themselves. I imagine that they released it. But when they thought those, you know, the Toronto buzz of huge, and you know, just that was a bad call on their part. Yeah. No. I mean, I just. It's such a terrific movie. I mean, I just wish it really number eight the animated movie small foot number nine night school three point two million. And then Jonah Hill's movie cracked the top ten mid nineties with three million three million dollars, and it was a very low budget film. So so those are interesting numbers. But yeah, I I'm curious as to how bohemian rhapsody is gonna do. I am too. Because you know, I feel like there's some some parallels going on here with that. And last year's big musical hit the greatest showman, which was which was also from FOX. And also, you know, just, you know, a lot of wall to wall music and with a character at the center of it who was a real person. It'll be interesting to see this movie. If FOX's betting on that same kind of audience turnout that they had last year for this one because at your plays the same way in many different ways. So yeah, it will be it will be interesting to see if if there's a real appetite for a bio pic about Freddie, Mercury. But what is it has legs? I don't know. I can't really review it. So yes, I have seen it. So. Yeah. All right. Well, so Colin to have a nice break. Thank you. And we will you in December, correct. Yep. Sounds good. All right. Jim. We'll talk to you next week. Okay. Looking forward to talk to you talk to you guys soon. Laura Collins gonna take a little time off. And and so the gym's going to be back with us. Eric will be back with us.
