Small businesses are the engine of the U.S. economy and we are thrilled to be creating new, permanent jobs for people.” The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012—compare those numbers to the honorees of the Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
