Shop Small, Shop Local
Microbusinesses represent 92 percent of all U.S. businesses. Shocking isn’t it? It’s not just the fortune 500 creating jobs and adding to the nation’s economy. Instead it’s the little guy, the locally owned stores that really need your green. In 2011, microbusinesses directly accounted for approximately 26 million jobs in the economy. That’s more than the total number of individuals employed in the government sector at the local, state and federal levels, and more than twice as many who work in Manufacturing . It is also more than total numbers in the Trade, Transportation and Utilities sector. You might want to read up on this two-year study for the facts. Shopping small businesses helps support our economy, our neighbors, and our community!
