Infographic: ACA Impact on Self Employment

This infographic by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation shows how the ACA is estimated to significantly increase the number of people who start their own businesses. 1.5 million additional people are expected to become self-employed because of protections or benefits offered by the act. The ACA relieves “job lock,” when people stay in jobs because their health insurance coverage is tied to their employment status.
