    Since I am the boss, I'll choose the latter.

    Does it matter either way?

    Your boss is not keeping you on the payroll because he likes you, he's keeping you around because you're doing a job that he needs done in order to stay in business and make money.

    As soon as he finds a way doing without you or getting your job done more cheaply, you'll be gone.

    A boss with more money is more likely to expand his business and hire more people.

    There's almost always more business to be had.

    Doesn't that depend on the business that you're in?

    The mom and pop hardware store has just about been eliminated by the likes of Home Depot and Lowes. As successful as mom and pop may have been, I hardly think they're going to be expanding their business and putting on more help when Home Depot moves in around the corner.

    Opportunity is always there.

    If retail hardware is being squeezed, there are specialties one can exploit that big box stores cannot.

    If a business owner has more money, it is easier to take advantage of opportunities.

    Is this a call for corporate welfare?
