Derek Thompson of The Atlantic: “The economy added 217,000 jobs in May—with the unemployment rate unchanged at 6.3 percent—setting a new all-time record. It only took 2,312 days. This also marked the 51st consecutive month of private-sector job growth, matching the longest run ever from February 1996 to April 2000. That’s the record we should be more proud of.”

“Even though we’ve ‘recovered all the jobs we lost,’ we haven’t actually recovered all the jobs we lost. We’ve reached the old peak with a new mix of jobs.

Below is a sector-by-sector breakdown of the peak-to-peak change.”Another job sector on the rise is cryptocurrency finance. More and more people are opting for cryptocurrency jobs as interest in the industry rises. If you’d like to find out more about why it is such an inviting role, there are many articles readily available online.
