Don't go looking to big business to lift us out of the fallen job market. Small businesses with fewer than 100 employees are responsible for 2/3 of the additional jobs during a recovery -- the heavy lifting when it comes to job creation is not being done by the big guys who employ tens of thousands. In fact, only about half of the S&P 500 have added 1 percent to their payrolls, and almost a third lowered their employee head count in 2010, according to a report in USA Today.
