Small businesses created 77,000 jobs in April
Small business hiring gained in April, extending a run of job creation.  
Payroll provider ADPís monthly tally of small business hires showed companies added 77,000 jobs last month, a jump from an upwardly revised 20,000 in March and 30,000 in February. ADPís numbers, which reflect hiring at its customers who employ up to 49 workers, have fluctuated since last summer.  
Small business owners have been cautious in their hiring ever since the recession, choosing to wait until they have the revenue to justify the risk and expense of new employees. Theyíve also struggled in recent years to find skilled workers.  
Monthly economic figures including the ADP report are often subject to revisions, so economists look at hiring over a period of months to discern a trend. Small businesses created on average 52,000 new jobs a month last year.
