We already know that Dallas is tops for jobs in general, but Big D also looks out for the little guy. According to a new survey from Wallethub.com, Dallas is among the best places in America to be an employee at a small company.

Using metrics ranging from small business job growth and average hours worked and wages, the survey determined the top 10 cities to work for a small business. Dallas came in a No. 9 on the list, beating out all other Texas cities including Houston (No. 13) and Austin (No. 16).

Although Austin didn't make the overall top 10, it did come in first place for small business vitality.

The survey defined a small business as one with fewer than 250 employees and gave extra weight to cities with high industry variety and a low cost of living. Wallethub ranked 100 of the largest metropolitan areas in America to determine the best and worst cities to work for a small business.

The top spot went to Minneapolis, followed by Salt Lake City and Miami. California is home to five out of the 10 worst small business cities, with Stockton coming in dead last.
