Since March we’ve all been struggling to deal with the many changes the pandemic has brought to our lives. In past polls we’ve asked how COVID was affecting your work life and what changes to you expect to see as businesses reopen. This time we just wanted to know how you’re doing. And we were very happy to hear from so many of you – we had a record-breaking 18,982 votes this month!
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics released encouraging data in the June Employment Situation Summary for 2020. The US unemployment rate declined to 11.1%, down 2.2 percentage points. US employment rose by 4.8 million in June, compared to May’s increase of 2.7 million.
We’ve all been facing an unprecedented situation this spring. We wrote last month that we wanted to hear from you about your situation, your needs and your hopes for the future. Thank you to everyone who has called in, sent an email or commented on our poll – we’ve been very encouraged by how y’all are hanging in there! For our poll, we asked how COVID-19 is affecting your work life. We had a solid turnout of 12,930 votes this month!
