Hiring is soaring and wages are rising at American small businesses.

That’s according to the latest employment report from the National Federation of Independent Business. Owners of small firms surveyed in March reported a seasonally adjusted average employment increase per firm of 0.36 workers.

This is “one of the best readings in survey history,” according to NFIB Chief Economist William Dunkelberg.

A seasonally adjusted net 20% are planning to create new jobs, which is up two points from the February reading and close to a record high. “Except for the last four months, the last time job creation plans reached 20% was in 1999,” adds Mr. Dunkelberg.

National Federation of Independent Business is a cheerleader organization, and cannot be expected to release an unbiased report.

If you information that debunks the report, by all means share it.

The latest BLS jobs report showed +103k jobs, well below expectations, and wages stagnant.
