COVID-19 and the State Economy
The April numbers are the first to be done during a period when most counties had moved out of the strictest, Tier 1 restrictions. Not surprisingly, as businesses were allowed to move towards more relaxed operating conditions, the job numbers came in higher than previous months. Gains in employment, however, remain subdued.
Job recovery was seen across all three wage levels. While the lower wage industries again experienced somewhat higher movement, their overall recovery status remains the lowest. The higher wage industries continued to exceed the previous recovery peak reached prior to the state’s renewed stay-at-home orders at the end of last year, while the other three categories rose above those peaks for the first time and regained the economic ground that was lost in December.
