Of Every Ten Americans Unemployed Due To COVID-19, Five Are Still Out Of Work

The nonpartisan think tank Pew Research Center conducted a random online survey of 13,200 Americans in August, 2020, to check the state of employment.

The results showed that among the workers who got their hours or pay cut at the start of the pandemic, 60% are still making less than they were before March.

According to Business Insider, the national unemployment rate peaked at 14.7% in April after stay-at-home orders prompted sudden business closures.
