Memo: June Jobs Day By the Numbers

July 2, 2021

Groundwork Collaborative wants to make sure you have the full context on the U.S. Labor Department’s June Employment Report and the investments we need for an equitable recovery and a truly inclusive economy. 

Groundwork’s Chief Economist Dr. Rakeen Mabud said it succinctly:

For all the exciting news in this jobs report, don’t forget that the Black unemployment rate is still 9.2 percent. That’s intolerable. We can’t afford to get complacent when so many around the country aren’t yet feeling the recovery. #jobsday
