By August 26, 2020No Comments

Employment in manufacturing and warehousing remains below pre-pandemic levels as manufacturers and supply chains get ready to produce and move inventory for peak season.


Employment dipped to its lowest levels in April for both sectors. Employment in manufacturing fell 10% year over year in April and 5% in warehousing during the same period. Workers have since come back, but at levels lower than in the first three months of the year or all of 2019, according to the latest employment figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
