The Role of Small Businesses in Economic Equality

Posted on: October 18th, 2016

GradStaff CEO Bob LaBombard was recently part of the discussion panel at the 52nd annual Gustavus Adolphus Nobel Conference. Year in and year out, the conference covers a wide range of social and scientific issues, with this year’s main discussion gearing toward “economic balance in everyday life.” LaBombard, and other panelists, pointed to the slowdown of growth and development of new small businesses as a big contributor to the slow decline of the middle class.

With over 70% of new jobs in 2015 being created by companies of 500 employees or less, it is obvious to see that if this decline continues, it could cause an even bigger problem within the economy, as well as create more challenges among young job seekers. GradStaff understands how important small businesses are to the U.S. economy and strives to help these businesses find great employees for their entry-level job openings. The future of these companies lies in the hands of new graduates, and the future of a lot of recent graduates currently rely, and will continue to rely on jobs created by small businesses.
