From the AHMA survey: hot topics

The American Hardware Manufacturers Association (AHMA) surveyed members on two hot topic questions. 

As sales of existing-homes fell in October for the second consecutive month, the AHMA asked: “Is a strong housing market important to the success of your business?”

Ninety percent responded “Yes,” and 10% responded “No.”

Secondly, with the Affordable Care Act stumbling out of the gates, the AHMA asked: “How important is it to your business that implementation of the Affordable Care Act allows you to provide quality, affordable healthcare insurance plans to your employees?”

The survey shows 35% responded “Very important,” 10% responded “Somewhat important,” and 55% responded “Not important.”
