The latest jobs report means the worst could be behind us
From retail to restaurants across America, people are returning to their old jobs or finding new ones. Here are the professions that reported the highest gain:

In May, restaurants and bars recovered nearly 1.4 million jobs by reopening nationwide, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While restaurants and bars were classified by states as essential activities that could only take away and deliveries, many were still closed during residence orders. Some companies have found it difficult, or economically impossible, to adopt that model, or have other public health problems.

Retail workers

In the retail trade, 367,800 jobs have returned, with the clothing stores having the biggest gains. Gap announced in May that it will reopen 800 stores, including Old Navy, gap (GPS), Banana Republic and Athleta brand stores.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said this week that the company had hired more than 300,000 coworkers in the United States since March, most of whom are temporary workers, to help “ease some of the burden on” current warehouse workers. and to offer those who have lost their jobs more opportunities.

Factory workers

The factory works are also back, as they are in the first phase of reopening. The manufacturing industry added 225,000 jobs.

This is good news for an industry that saw its biggest drop in production in March 1946. Cars, aircraft and other factories stopped operating to protect workers from the pandemic.
