Small-business hiring slowed considerably in April and employees saw a reduction in their hours, according to a survey by the payroll processing firm Intuit. Businesses added 40,000 new jobs, a step back from the 75,000 positions created in March, and the average workweek for small-business employees dipped 0.14%. The survey showed wages for small-business employees edged up 0.1% or $3 to $2,680. However, that is equivalent to an annual salary of $33,200, meaning that many of the small-business employees are working part-time.
