The employers need not be concerned about the new health care law that requires a greater insurance coverage for the employees. Economists, like Moody believe that some small enterprises are hiring people on a part-time basis to avoid the insurance coverage. According to the law of United States of America, only the full-time workers are liable to receive the benefits of insurance coverage of the country.

Contrarily, though the business endeavors have increased manifold but sale of franchisees has not shown any momentum. In 2012, the sale made 4.9 per cent gain, whereas in the current year it is just 4.3 per cent, as per the data of the International Franchise Association.
