The Franchise Owner's most trusted news source
ROSELAND, N.J. – U.S. private-sector franchise jobs increased by 30,250 during the month of December 2013, according to the ADP National Franchise Report.
“Job creation in the franchise industry showed encouraging activity in December, posting the overall strongest gain in nine months,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute. “Throughout 2013, the franchise industry added 229,000 new jobs, which represents nearly 11 percent of all new jobs created in the U.S., based on our data. Year over year, the rate of employment growth among franchise businesses was 2.9 percent, outpacing the national average of 1.9 percent by a full percentage point.”
The report is produced by ADP, a global provider of Human Capital Management, in collaboration with Moody’s Analytics, Inc. and is published by the ADP Research Institute. ADP’s high number of 238,000 for all private sector jobs added in December is in contrast with the weak figure from the U.S. government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Report of 74,000 jobs added in December. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not track only franchise-related jobs.
