The May gain was by far the biggest one-month jobs surge in U.S. recorded history, and unemployment has seemingly hit its peak as employers across the country begin reopening and rehiring laid off workers. However, full economic recovery is expected to be slow, and very much depends on whether there is a resurgence of the virus later this year.
