Message from the President
Did you know that 59% of State Chamber members have between 1 and 5 employees? The next highest group of members, or 16% of the membership, has between 6 and 20 employees. Taken together, a full 75% percent of our membership has 20 or fewer employees – a statistic that is representative of the business community across the entire country.

To help the Federal Reserve better understand issues associated with credit, we’re partnering with the Federal Reserve to conduct a   Small Business Credit Survey   for both pre-start and existing businesses, and we’d like you to participate. Read more

October Labor Review
Delaware’s unemployment rate rose two-tenths of a point to 3.7 percent in October. There are some underlying signs of weakness in the labor market. Workers become unemployed for four reasons:

  1. Job losers are those who have been laid off or have completed temporary jobs
  2. Job leavers are people who have voluntarily left their job in search of better opportunities
  3. New entrants are job seekers new to the labor market such as recent high school and college graduates
  4. Re-entrants have re-entered the labor market after spending some time out of the labor market
