Small businesses are gradually picking up the pace of their hiring, according to reports this week.
The payroll company ADP said Wednesday that its small business customers added 58,000 jobs last month, up from 50,000 in April. The company also revised its March number to 74,000 from 60,000.
Nearly two-thirds of the jobs, 37,000, were at companies with fewer than 20 workers. The rest were at companies with 20 to 49 workers.
And on Tuesday, software maker Intuit said its small business customers added 35,000 jobs last month. It revised its April reading up to 35,000 from 20,000.
