“The July jobs report shows the magnitude of small businesses that are growing and hiring at record levels, creating new jobs and opportunities for the workforce,” says NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan in a statement. The survey also sees a record-high 37 percent of owners say they had an open position in July that they couldn’t fill. The openings were in construction, manufacturing and wholesale trades for both skilled and unskilled labor. New data from the Labor Department put the number of all open jobs in the country at 6.7 million. “Record job openings suggest that the economy can keep up its growth pace over the next few years if the labor shortage can be resolved or mitigated,” adds NFIB Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg.
