The Leisure/Hospitality industry recovered 56,000 jobs since the “dine-in” ban was lifted

The Michigan Leisure/Hospitality industry has recovered 56,000 jobs since the “dine-in” ban was lifted (funny how that works, right?) 

Leisure and hospitality jobs have recovered to where they were prior to Michigan’s second dine-in ban, which was in effect from Nov. 18 through Jan. 31. 

The industry lost nearly 63,000 jobs in December, but recovered 9,000 of them in January.

Statewide, our unemployment rate is only 5.2% but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Many people have given up looking for work for various reasons, so Michigan’s labor force declined by 42,000 to about 4.7 million in February. That’s Michigan’s smallest labor force since November 2012.

That’s why February boasted lower unemployment numbers, even though fewer people were employed.

So, things are looking good but there’s still room for improvement.
