Mergers and acquisitions may help Georgia economy

As the nation comes out of the recession, it is easy to see how many businesses have been negatively affected by the economic downturn. However, some businesses are emerging stronger than ever, with mergers and acquisitions that promise job and economic growth. One flooring company based in Georgia has made huge gains recently, particularly after spending $1.82 billion on acquisitions in the past several months.

Georgia restaurant sued for overtime pay

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes standards for wages and hours that employers are expected to follow, including overtime pay, child labor laws and time-and-a-half earnings. One Georgia restaurant has recently been accused of violating FLSA, and a former cook has filed a federal lawsuit in an attempt to get the overtime pay that he feels he is owed. According to reports, disputes about overtime are not uncommon in Atlanta, particularly for workers in service-oriented positions.

Georgia business organization is one area worthy of investment

Georgia entrepreneurs have a lot to think about when they start a small business. There are always opportunities to make mistakes and spend money unwisely. However, planning ahead and starting off as small as possible can help business owners save time and money. Some investments, such as establishing a business organization and setting up a website, are wise, but there are other areas where it is fine to cut corners.

Georgia businesses can grow by incorporating a franchise

A trend is beginning to emerge that involves business owners buying franchises and incorporating them into their existing businesses. Owners of various businesses have found success with this, since a related franchise can help them grow and diversify without having to start a new business from scratch or expand into new markets. Georgia business owners looking to boost their profits and expand their company may want to look into this growing trend.
