Even in a pandemic, there’s work to be found, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today that 636,000 jobs were added nationwide in October, leading the October unemployment rate to fall 1 percent from September’s 7.9 percent to 6.9 percent, all due to more states reopening businesses during a pandemic.

Those unemployed also dropped significantly with 1.5 million less people out of work, with now 11.1 million unemployed nationwide, the United States Department Of Labor has also seen its lowest weekly unemployment numbers drop to new lows during COVID19 to 751,000 as the reopening of the country continues.
