Melanie Baker, Senior Economist
Melanie Baker, senior economist at Royal London Asset Management comments on today’s (5 June) US employment data.
“Today’s data were a welcome upside surprise, however ongoing policy support is still very much needed, as US unemployment rate remains high and payrolls are still a long way below pre-crisis levels.
“As the US economy has started to reopen, people are being re-hired. Not all of these jobs will come back though and it is likely to take a lot longer for the unemployment rate to fall back than it took to spike up.”
