Who employs America? Scale model by company size

by Staff Writer

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).
