Small Businesses Are Hiring
Small businesses in the United States are feeling quite
these days. That's translating into more hiring by small businesses.
The National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) reports that
small businesses added 0.4 workers on average during March alone
. And another survey, this one by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, reports that
small business hiring was up 25% during the first three months of 2004
Jobs figures for small businesses are especially important indicators. That's because
small businesses are responsible for roughly three-quarters of all net new job growth in the United States
, according to the Small Business Administration.
