McHenry County businesses cast nervous eye to health care law
Three McHenry County small businesses have different levels of concern over what the Affordable Care Act will mean to them.
To the small Harvard manufacturer, the law is a foot in the door to socking all businesses with the mandate of providing health insurance, not just those with 50 or more full-time employees. To the Crystal Lake garden center, the law could end up costing a lot more than politicians are saying. And to the Woodstock computer company, the law is government getting in the way of a company already providing quality insurance.
And all three of them wonder whether the mandates that come with the law will mean a future decision over whether it’s worth it to grow. Aero Industries, a Harvard-based manufacturer of graphite components for high-temperature applications, has tripled its size in five years from operating out of a home to a plant with 11 full-time employees.
