No one has greater incentive, responsiblity or ability to lead an economic recovery than America’s small business owners – more than 350,000 of whom are NFIB members. Therefore, lawmakers have a special obligation to ensure that public policies help spur economic growth by taking into account the unique perspective of those who are are owning and operating a small business in America.
Small businesses play a major role in the American economy:
- Represents 99% of all employer firms
- Employ about half of private-sector employees
- Generated 60% to 80% of net new jobs annually over the last decade
- Create more than half of nonfarm private gross domestic product (GDP)
