While corporations do employ many Americans, small businesses account for 64 percent of net new jobs created. With the amount of rhetoric about unemployment rates and the role of small businesses in employment nationwide, we wanted to offer a unique perspective on some facts about the make-up of employers by firm size.
We created this graphic to give a scale representation of how many employees companies of a certain size represent in the workforce. Small businesses (those under 500 employees) employ just over 50% of all workers and closer to 60% if you include the 21+ million non-employer firms (self-employed).
