The number of US jobs fell by more than 20 million in April

The reduction in the salary Fund is explained by measures introduced in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The number of laid-off employees of private enterprises in the United States exceeded 20 million in April. The reason for this was the impact on the labor market of the outbreak of a new coronavirus, which led to large-scale job cuts.

According to the data provided in the National Report on the employment situation released on Wednesday, restrictive measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 may lead to long-term consequences for the country’s economy, even if a significant part of the US territory will resume work of secondary enterprises.

According to revised data for March, the number of private-sector jobs fell by 149,000 this month, instead of the 27,000 previously reported.
