Small Business Employment, Compensation, Hours Worked All Up in September 2011 [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Intuit Small Business Employment Index for September is showing signs of relief for small business employment. In spite of all the uproar over the threatened European financial meltdown, this good news is very welcome.

Unlike in August, there’s no softness in September’s numbers: Employment is up, hours worked are up, and compensation is up. And all are up by a healthy amount that is equivalent to more than 3 percent annually.  We have a ways to go to make up for growth that didn’t happen during the recession, but this is a good start.  In the following infographic, we explore the latest numbers and what they mean for small businesses nationwide. Click the infographic for an enlarged view.
