According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, companies with 5,000 or more employees have been hiring U.S. workers at a fairly quick pace, expanding their work forces by an average of 0.4 percentage point a month from January 2011 to February 2012.

Meanwhile, companies with nine or fewer workers saw their net employment decline.
