END THE WAR ON FEMALE BUSINESS OWNERS
Male-dominated businesses are thriving while female business owners are being attacked by the federal government. Businesses that are dominated by men such as fitness clubs and non-salon businesses do not have to pay the tan tax. Fitness clubs are unregulated and unsupervised. While unregulated tanning continues to grow, certified tanning salons are suffering.
Not only has the tax raised a small fraction of what it originally proposed, but more than 100,000 women have lost their businesses and jobs. With over 70% of tanning salons being owned by women, 99% women employed by salons, and more than 75% of tanning consumers being women, the tan tax has targeted women in the most unfair way and is a complete failure. Attacking female business owners and employees will never be the solution for any problem.
