IMPORTANT: Only 34% of the jobs lost during the pandemic are back. 22.2 million jobs lost in March & April 7.5 million jobs came back in May & June It’s good news some jobs are returning. Every job means a lot to that person/family. But there’s still a long way to go.

Some people being asked to return to work, only to find they are getting less than 20 hours a week - waiters for instance. This kills their income and unemployment benefits - they cannot quit and go back to unemployment. They are now "employed for pittance.

These jobs are back because businesses opened. Which is now spreading the cases, since they opened without maintaining public health priorities. How is this anything except temporary?

And in Florida and Texas the bars were just shut back down again so all those jobs will show up in July's numbers.
