“Small businesses are the backbone of the New Jersey economy,” Corrado said. “As a small business owner myself, I understand the countless financial and personal sacrifices that entrepreneurs must make to build their business from the ground up. The designation of May as ‘Small Business Month’ will help us to recognize that hard work and highlight the enormous role that small businesses play in growing our state and local economies.”
Corrado’s bipartisan legislation, SJR-27, designates May of each year as “Small Business Month” in New Jersey.
New Jersey has more than 820,000 small businesses, comprising more than 98% of all New Jersey employers. Small businesses in the Garden State employ 1.7 million workers, more than half of the state’s workforce.
“Small businesses are integral to the Garden State’s economic health, identity, and well-being,” added Corrado. “This resolution will help us to honor the hustle, dedication, and resilience of small business owners throughout New Jersey.”
