A survey conducted by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business revealed that 56 per cent of small business owners said they are worried about future business prospects in 2020. The respondents felt that global trade and international tensions will stunt growth and that Canada is dealing with a weakness in the natural resources area owing to depressed energy prices.
Furthermore some Canadian businesses took a heavy blow from the 7 day CN Railroad strike in November which disrupted key shipments of agricultural and mining products across Canada.
Some of these small companies are run by people who are just members of the working class trying to get ahead, but nevertheless, if their companies go bankrupt it will still mean more unemployment.
Under capitalism nothing much generally changes for workers.
