Small Business Coalition Launches Antitrust Campaign Targeting Amazon, Big Tech
A national coalition of groups representing small businesses launched a campaign advocating for strict antitrust laws and the abolishment of tech monopolies like Amazon.
The effort will call on lawmakers to put stricter measures in place to ensure corporations no longer engage in “abusive tactics,” the groups said Tuesday. The coalition, dubbed Small Business Rising, is made up of several small business groups including the Alliance for Pharmacy Compounding, the American Booksellers Association, the National Office Products Alliance and the National Grocers Association.
“Today it’s harder than ever to grow a business, no matter how great your idea or how hard you work,” the coalition said in a statement on its website. “That’s because monopolistic corporations, backed by Wall Street, have seized control of many industries and are blocking small businesses from competing.”
