Industry News & Highlights
While small business hiring declined in March compared to February, wage growth remains steady across small offices in the United States.
According to Paychex/IHS Markit’s Small Business Employment Watch, the Jobs Index for March declined 0.15 percent to 98.78. According to the Index’s methodology, “An upward trend represents a strengthening job market, while a downward trend is a sign of a slowdown.” A score of 100 is a high-water mark of the year 2004, for a pre-recession performance. Companies can score over 100 if they show performance above pre-recession 2004.
