The U.S. unemployment rate fell below last month’s record-high 14.7 percent, which was the highest on record in data going back to 1948. Economists estimate that the unemployment rate reached 25 percent during the Great Depression, although that predated the scientific economy-wide record keeping the government now deploys.
The job gains mark a sudden turnaround from a month earlier, when the economy shed a staggering 20.5 million jobs, by far the worst monthly decline on records back to 1939.
Economists had expected the unemployment rate to rise to nearly 20 percent and the economy to shed an additional 8 million jobs.
The mandatory closures of many businesses and stay-at-home orders slammed what had been a very healthy labor market hard. The economy added jobs for 113 straight weeks through February, a record streak of growth. The unemployment rate was 3.5 percent in February. And yet job creation was running very hot, with the economy adding an average of 211,000 new jobs each month.
The government has undertaken unprecedented efforts to support employment and provide aid to those who have lost their jobs. Around 150 million taxpayers received stimulus payments of up to $1200 for adults in their household plus additional amounts for children. The Treasury’s Paycheck Protection Program is backing $669 billion of loans to small businesses that can be forgiven if borrowers do not lay off workers. The federal government has been providing an additional $600 on top of state unemployment benefits, paying some Americans more than they earned on the job.
Recent data suggest the labor market has been stabilizing and is now improving. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits has declined every week since hitting a record high 6.8 million in March. Last week, this number fell to around 1.8 million. Over 40 million new claims have been made for unemployment since the wave but ongoing claims are just over 20 million, indicating many Americans have been rehired after losing jobs.
In May, employment in leisure and hospitality jumped by 1.2 million after falling by 7.5 million in April and 743,000 in March. Bars and restaurants hired an additional 1.4 million workers following a combined 6.1 million in job losses in April and March.
Construction employment jumped by 464,000 in May, gaining back almost half of April’s decline.
Dentist offices added 245,000 jobs. Health care employment overall rose by 312,00.
Retail shops added 368,000 jobs in May, after a loss of 2.3 million inApril. Over-the-month job gains occurred in clothing and clothing accessories stores were 95,000. Auto dealers added 85,000. General merchandise stores added 84,000.
Manufacturers added 225,000 jobs, about evenly split between the durable and nondurable goods components. Twenty-eight thousand of those were in auto making plants.

She can’t control her streets from rioters but she can use taxpayer money to paint a slogan on the street to the White House.
This message in yellow paint spans two blocks on 16th Street to the White House.
“The painting of 16th St with “BLACK LIVES MATTER” is an effort not only blessed by Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser but initiated by her,” said the mayor’s spokeswoman LaToya Foster to CNN.
“The painters are contractors directed by the Mayor. They have been at it since 2 or 3 in the morning.”
Washington has been the site of more than a week’s worth of protests in response to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. St. John’s Church, the site of President Trump’s roundly criticized photo opp during a peaceful protest, sits along the expanse of road that now bears the BLM message. They will continue this weekend, including one on Saturday that is expected to yield a large turnout.

Numerous major American cities have been rocked by civil unrest over the past 10 days, with the riots claiming 17 lives. Other cities in Europe, Canada and Australia have also been hit with violent protests.
This has greatly pleased the Islamic State, which welcomed the riots in the latest edition of its al-Naba newspaper.
“ISIS has commented for the first time on the protests across the US over the death of George Floyd,” commented jihad specialist Mina Al-Lami. “In its paper al-Naba, IS said the civil unrest must not be seen as a problem for the US alone, and that other “infidel” countries should brace themselves for the repercussions.”
“It compared the potential spread of the unrest across Western countries to the spread of Covid-19 in the West. IS gleefully reported on the protests, hoping that together with coronavirus they would weaken the West and “distract” its countries from “meddling” in Muslim affairs,” she added.
Given that many of the protesters share ISIS’s goal of collapsing the west, it’s unsurprising that the terror group and the hard left demonstrators are on common ground.
Indeed, the vision is so similar that ISIS once even suggested recruiting and arming anti-American protesters to turn them into jihadists.
