After recent unemployment rates were said to be at Great Depression-level highs, the situation seems to be improving a little bit.
The unemployment rate fell to 13.3% in May, from 14.7% in April. And so far in June, the pace of jobless claims continues to slow.
With social distancing policies still the norm across the country, many of the job opportunities that are opening up are remote in nature. Before the coronavirus pandemic, just 14% of employees in the U.S. worked from home five days a week. Now that share has swelled to more than 60%.
