More customers and sales mean businesses need to hire more employees to keep up. And forecasts show it may be more than just tourist season.
According to payroll processor ADP, small businesses with fewer than 50 employees added 117,000 jobs last month, the biggest jump in 5 years. Medium-sized companies with between 50 and 499 workers added 144,000.
While seasonal factors may give data an extra boost, economists predict 2011 will continue to add around 200,000 jobs a month, more than double last year's pace.
