Graves Introduces Small Business Saturday Resolution
Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) today introduced a resolution to designate a Small Business Saturday and express support for America’s 28 million small businesses.
Small companies are often highly innovative, and account for half of America’s economy. An overwhelming 93 percent of Americans recognize the importance of supporting small businesses.
“Small Business Saturday is a great way to say ‘thank you’ to a small business near you, especially during the holiday shopping season,” Graves said. “America’s small businesses help define what communities are all about. Small firms create seven out of every ten new jobs, and employ nearly half of all private sector employees in the United States. Small businesses make a big difference in our nation’s economy and their growth is essential to a stronger recovery."
