Carbon (dioxide) Tax Hurting

  • The Daily Telegraph 
  • STRUGGLING small business owners are reporting a hit to their profits from the carbon tax - but are unwilling to pass increased costs on to customers because of the tough retail environment.    A national survey of 186 small firms has found 50 per cent are reporting carbon tax-related price hikes to power bills and other supplies. But only 33 per cent are making their clientele pay.
    With many high street retailers experiencing slow trading conditions, a mere 8 per cent favoured the carbon tax.
