At least 17.8 million people remain out of work in the wake of the COVID-19 impact on the economy which began in mid-March as the country started shutting down to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Business analysts say the global health pandemic has sped up some of the changes in the workplace that were already taking place. Advances in technology have led to employers eliminating some manual, repetitive jobs. It’s changed the way the majority of people work and has created jobs that didn’t even exist a decade or two ago.
