The COVID-19 employment roller coaster just took another turn, and the job growth we saw in Summer and Fall 2020 appears to be at an end.
In this post I take a look at the new September 2020 state-level employment data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and find a complex and tenuous jobs recovery in America. I share some of the most interesting numbers in original graphs.
The mostly recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that in May and June of this year the U.S. Economy may have recovered 36% of the jobs lost during in the first wave of COVID-19 shutdowns. Now, as public spaces are shutting down for a second time, I look at what happened last month in colorful and original graphs.
