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. Job losses in March were revised from a loss of 701,000 to a loss of 870,000. During the Great Recession in 2007 to 2009, the biggest month of job losses was 800,000, and total job losses were 8.7 million. Thus, after just two months, job losses of 21.4 million during the Viral Recession have more than doubled those during the two years-plus during the Great Recession.
