My business will be affected

We have a small, environmental landscaping business employing 4 people.  We get a number of contracts from local government and national government bodies such as Natural England and the Environment Agency.  The cuts could well mean that our business goes under which would put 4 people on the dole.  There is lots of talk, quite rightly, about the hundreds of thousands of public sector workers that will lose their jobs but very little talk of the knock-on effect to the private sector.  Thousands of private businesses rely on public contractors or, at the very least, spend on products and services by public sector workers.  Throwing all these people on the dole will have a terrible effect on the economy.
