Pandemic Causes Loss of 20,500,000 Jobs, Unemployment at 14.7 Percent

Temporary layoffs make up 78.3 percent of unemployment.

As expected, the April jobs report showed a catastrophic hit to the labor market stemming from the pandemic. The economy lost another 20,500,000 jobs in April after losing 870,000 jobs in March. This is an order of magnitude higher than any previous two-month decline on record. The unemployment rate jumped to 14.7 percent, up 11.2 percentage points from what had been a 50-year low of 3.5 percent in February. The employment-to-population (EPOP) ratio was down 9.8 percentage points over this period, as 25.4 million fewer people report being employed in April than in February. READ MORE

    by no means found any attention-grabbing article like

    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as
    you probably did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider
    worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
