The U.S. Economy Has Officially Regained All Jobs Lost During the Pandemic

Not only did the national unemployment rate reach a record high in April of 2020, but the situation became so dire that lawmakers boosted jobless benefits and sent stimulus checks to shore up Americans' bank accounts. In fact, recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the economy has now officially regained all of the jobs it lost during the pandemic.
