Michigan Business Network
May 8, 2020 10:00 AM

The April jobs report was by far the worst in U.S. history.

Employment, as measured by a survey of establishments that goes back to 1939, fell by 20.5 million, easily surpassing the previous all-time high of 1.959 million jobs lost in one month in 1945, after the end of World War II.
