President Obama talks a lot about building an economy that will last—one built from the middle out where everyone has a fair shot and hard work pays off.
Sascha, the owner of a small flooring installation business in Wilmington, agrees with the President. Why? Because that's how Sascha runs his business too:
“I make sure that my employees are very well taken care of above anything else. I’m always trying to take care of them—they’ve got families and kids. I’m not out to make millions of dollars, I just want to make sure I can provide and grow for my employees."
Like President Obama, Sascha believes that taking care of each other isn't just the right thing to do; it makes for a better business:
“When people have resources, higher spirits, and motivation, they will be able to come up with new ideas and business innovations. It doesn’t happen over night, it takes time—it works."
While Sascha’s hard work has helped him to be a successful small business owner—he also knows that he has an ally in President Obama:
“There is no question in my mind that President Obama supports small business owners. Like a lot of small business owners, I don't make huge profits—if you take away the tax breaks that President Obama has provided to small businesses, it’s almost unfeasible for me to keep going.”
For Sascha, the choice for small business owners like him couldn't be clearer:
“I’ve worked for people like Mitt Romney, and I would never do it again. Their motivation isn’t treating their employees well or putting out excellent quality products, they only care about that bottom dollar. The idea of someone with that mentality being president is very, very scary.”
