In this week’s roundup, we’ll discuss why small businesses are actually backing an increased minimum wage, how to handle lawsuits as a small biz, why child care is an important small business issue, and how you can help manage cyber risks.

First, some other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: Dish Mobs: The New York Times shares links to articles on the president’s “incredibly ambitious” State of the Union address, how the pending automatic sequestration cuts could affect small businesses, the new purchase-by-tweet service by American Express, advice for getting blogs to mention your products, 26 ways to market your business on Tumblr, and much more.
  • 3 Things You Should Know About Small Business: Feb. 20: The Street links to articles about the deterioration of small business credit conditions, why smaller companies should be thinking more globally, and how a small business owner in South Carolina is out over a quarter million dollars from Walmart.
  • Small Business Must-Reads: Thursday, Feb. 21: From The Wall Street Journal, links to articles on changing corporate structure to save on taxes, small biz optimism, why offering customers too many choices can be bad for business, and more.

And now, the rest!

  • Higher Minimum Wage? Small Business Doesn’t Mind: Bloomberg reports that “President Barack Obama’s recent proposal to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour by the end of 2015 has an unlikely ally: a sizable swath of America’s 6 million small employers.”
