(AmericanProsperity.com) – As millions of Americans wonder what the next year holds, many are simply hoping to get back to work. For a surprising number, however, that happened in June.
The June jobs report from the Council of Economic Advisors shows since the pandemic began economic shutdowns in March, nearly a third of jobs lost between March and April have returned.
Of the 7.5 million jobs created in the past two months, the majority are in the leisure and hospitality industry. However, it still needs 4.8 million more jobs to get everyone back to work.
