With the country's job creation engine stalled, President Barack Obama hopes to restart hiring again through a number of initiatives contained within the $447 billion American Jobs Act that he outlined last week.

The legislation contains five key components aimed at helping small businesses grow and hire, putting Americans back to work through key infrastructure projects, worker retraining and social security payroll tax cuts.
