How Government Regulation Stifles Creation of Jobs

This is a blog entry posted by a Hungarian entrepreneur: http://www.arcticstartup.com/2012/01/09/this-is-why-i-dont-give-you-a-job

He explains that he would not hire a woman, because the cost of required maternity leave is prohibitively expensive; nor would he hire someone over 50, because he would not be able to fire the person if the person did not perform the work adequately.

This is an extreme example of the harmful effect of government interference with the right of employers and employees to enter into agreements.

When laws raise barriers against small businesses rather than creating a system that fosters the freedom of business owners to contract freely with people who wish to work for compensation, the end result, when the barriers get too high, is a situation in which the only thing keeping the economy going at all is the black market.
