Why Jobs Are Recovering

A useful thread from Adam Ozimek. Temporary layoffs are starting to be reversed as states re-open, and companies are rehiring to meet the conditions of the Payroll Protection Program. But unemployment due to permanent job loss actually rose this month, by 255,000. It’s too early to say we’re in a much-sought V-shaped recovery.
