Opinion We can finally retire the Scariest Jobs Chart You’ll See Today

LZ Granderson: The U.S. economy has recovered all the jobs that were lost at the beginning of the pandemic. He says jobs lost in early 2020 are not precisely the same ones that have been added since then. LZ: Overall employment is back where it was, but there have been winners and losers among industries. Granderson says it's great for workers that there are as many jobs on net today as there were before covid-19 hit. But it's less than ideal: We really should have more jobs today than what existed pre-pandemic, as the working-age population has grown, he says. He adds that the fact that we added 528,000 positions in July alone should allay fears that we're already in recession.
