Why just small businesses?

If the idea is right, it will be just as right for a 21 worker business as a 19 worker business.

The size is probably determined by the level of employees where the CEO is likely to be the owner. Might make a difference in the tolerance factor.
I lived in a town with a major industry employer. The company was hamstrung on the tolerance of even minor individual requests by an employee, regardless of how reasonable the request was, because unions would make that a precedence for all employees to be treated in the same way. Managers found this irksome because no latitude could be used, and every instance was closely studied by the company legal team for downstream consequences.
There were no winners, just a "boss/worker" mentality.
