Small business owners skipping summer vacations this year

UnknownThe unofficial end of summer, also known as Labor Day, is one week away and less than 50 percent of small business owners have taken or plan to take a vacation this summer. That’s according to a survey done by American Express. That’s a five percent drop from last year. The survey, which was cited in this article, also says business owners aren’t taking vacations because business has picked up.
