of net new jobs
Small businesses are an integral part of not only the American economy, but also the American way of life. Despite economic uncertainty, they have provided 55% of all jobs—and 66% of all net new jobs—since the 1970s*. Small businesses have also picked up the slack in the corporate job market, adding eight million jobs since 1990 as big businesses eliminated four million jobs. With the right skills and knowledge, you can make your own contribution as an American entrepreneur.
