Small business job growth
A new payroll survey of small businesses by Paychex Inc, shows that Tennessee leads the nation in small business job growth. The Small Business Employment Watch for May shows the Volunteer State led all states in small business job growth in the past 12 months, growing one-half percent more jobs over the past year. In wage growth, Tennessee ranked 7th highest among the states with an annual growth rate of 2.6%. The companies in the survey averaged an hourly salary of $24.17 in Tennessee during May. Nationwide, the study showed relatively stagnant job and wage growth last month, with only four states showing growth. The South continues to lead regions in employment growth with Tennessee among the top states. Jim Brown, Tennessee director of the NFIB, said Tennessee's relatively low taxes and regulations make the state attractive for small business growth.
