 Self-employment is THE labor market trend

In California corporations with more than 500 employees shed almost 300,00 jobs from 2003 to 2010, while during the same period,

companies with 1-4 employees created more than 700,00 jobs. It's the very small and independent workers who are creating the jobs. 

You know who the small businesses are, but who are these independent workers?

This session will present data supporting self-employment and local micro business trends, and describe strategies, tools and resources that are proven effective in creating businesses, jobs and sustained local economies, without huge investment.

 Bring your lunch, log on and discuss one of the most important labor market trends we are facing.
