Things like cafes, restaurants, cinemas and phone companies are considered independent businesses. But smaller things like personal trainers, personal shoppers, massage specialists and these ones offering companionship for lonely disabled privately are also seen as independent businesses - although they're not working for a big company and are self-employed as the only person working in their own businesses. It's a misconception all independent business owners are rich and some doesn't earn more than the average hired employer. They're also paying taxes like everyone else's. In addition they're not considered "real workers", but "money making machines" in a way. People starts their own businesses because of unemployment or wanting to contribute to the world differently.

Yet there's a difference between which welfare people gets. Someone employed by a business owner or by the state gets much more free money in pension and sick leave than business owners. In addition they gets parental leave and unemployment benefits, while owners doesn't get it. That means an employee who gets fired for bad behavior may get a lot of free money from the state funded by tax payers until he finds a job, while a business owner can't and have to go without any income until he gets hired by someone else if he gets bankrupt. So employers gets basically all welfare the country has, while owners almost only gets basic hospital care and education covered.

I think although the welfare state, tax-, public-system and social democracy are good thing - it's not necessarily to treat business owners too different from average Joe if they doesn't have a bigger income. The reason is because of businesses are needed for the society to develop. #Socialism #Norway
