While we are still trying to bounce back from the effects of COVID-19 in different aspects, there is some glimmer of hope in the job market. People seem to be more confident in their ability to find a job, which is a good sign!
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment increased by 850,000 jobs. Certain sectors are bouncing back that were hit hard during the pandemic such as hospitality, leisure, and retail.
Even though the number of unemployed hasn’t changed too much, it’s down from the crazy high that it was in April of 2020. People being vaccinated has helped them feel comfortable going back to work and regaining that confidence. With people getting back out to the world spending money, the stock market is hitting record highs. But we still have a lot of recovery to go with the Delta variant in the mix so stay tuned!
