Prior to Covid-19, most world economies were doing very well in the employment sector. The U.S. employment rate was at an all time high. As a result of Covid-19 and its impact upon the world, the U.S. is now experiencing record unemployment numbers that have not been seen since the “Great Depression”. This is now impacting the livelihoods of millions.
