Miami Business Owners Discuss Hillary Clinton’s New Small Business Plan

MIAMI –  On Wednesday, August 24 a panel of successful women of color business owners from the community met to discuss Hillary Clinton’s new small business plan and the positive impact this plan could have on their lives and businesses.

Held at the newly developed office of EcoTech Visions, a co-working space and incubator devoted to sustainable technology, the panel shared the common challenges they face in growing their businesses, along with how Hillary Clinton’s small business plan could help solve those issues

Moderated by Kimberly Mitchem-Rasmussen, the founder and director of the Political Institute for Women, the panel included Yolanda-Cash Jackson, a partner at the firm Becker & Poliakoff; Pandwe Gibson, founder of EcoTech Visions; and Carole Ann Taylor, owner of Miami to Go, Inc.

The panel also discussed Donald Trump’s hypocritical business practices and record of looking out for the wealthiest with Hillary Clinton’s agenda to make the economy work for everyone, not just those at the top.

Below are some highlights from the event:

“Women of color in the U.S. continue to make less money than men, a national wage gap with women of color earning 66 cents for every dollar earned by white males. As a small business owner, as a woman, and as a woman of color, I have a vested interest in seeing us elect a president that promises to be, as Secretary Clinton does, the Small Business President,” said Kimberly Mitchem-Rasmussen

“Health insurance is one of the biggest costs for a small business. Secretary Clinton’s plan has a health insurance incentive for small businesses, and that is crucial. Our current plan goes up every year. But it’s so important–you want a healthy workplace,” said Yolanda Cash-Jackson
