What to do about harassment in a small business?
If the owner refuses to do anything you could threaten to file a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They regulate employee rights and stuff. The owner would not want to hear from them

What Brady says is accurate. Go to the owner/manager first. Talk CALMLY with them about what you're having happen to you. Ask what measures he/she will take to stop it. Ask for a timeline in which this will be handled. Be patient. Once the timeline has been reached, if nothing changed, talk calmly with your manager/owner again and THEN tell them you're going to file a complaint with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over this. Then do it. Do not quit, that will go against you on your next job. If you are let go you can file another complaint for discrimination, and on your next job application you put that it was retaliation for notification of continual harassment against you on the job.

I have had a similar experience. Mine was much worse than this, but I found out that there are always jerks wherever you go. I would just ignore him and not talk to him and eventually he will stop if he is not given any attention. If this does not work, still just ignore and tell the owner about your concerns. The next day will not be as worse as before and things usually work out so do not let this ruin your day there are way more important things to do.
