What would it take to get small businesses to hire? Two job creators explain

According to the U.S. Treasury, small businesses create sixty percent of the jobs in America and employ about half of the country's workforce. With economic and job growth at a relative standstill, many small business owners are eagerly anticipating President Obama's jobs speech on Thursday.

Patty Briguglio and Christopher Zane, small business owners, are both invested in the  potential measures the president could announce this week. Briguglio is the president of MMI Public Relations and Zane is the founder of Zane's Cycles, one of the largest retail bicycle stores in the nation.

Both Briguglio and Zane join Alina Cho on American Today to discuss what they want to hear from President Obama and to explain what it will take to get them to hire.
