Economy Added 1.4 Million US Jobs in August 2020

August 2020 saw a significant increase in nonfarm payrolls as the unemployment rate fell to 8.4 percent

The additional 1.4 million jobs fueled the US economy as it is climbing out of the downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The US Labor Department reported the unemployment rate reached the lowest point since the pandemic shut down in March. Those holding part-time positions and discouraged workers due to economic reasons also is on the decline. The July numbers went from 16.5 percent to 14.2 percent, falling from the peak in April of 22.8 percent.

American Vice-President Mike Pence said, “It is another great day for American jobs and American workers.” He said the jobless rate reaching single digits and the significant job growth is valid evidence of America making a comeback.
