I wrote previously about the group of businesses who had helped craft the Paid Sick Leave ordinance and our commitment to creating a new kind of business association, one who’s members were dedicated to their community and their employees. We have come a long way towards formalizing this group and we are now called, Good Work Austin.
We had our first event at Matt Wright’s Better Half, to introduce the concept to other businesses and will be having another event specifically about health care & wellness options for small businesses at the end of the month. I keep waiting for something to go awry here but there is such wonderful communication during our meetings and such optimism coming from all the operators who represent several different industries.
If Texas doesn’t want businesses to compete on a level playing field, we will make one!
