It’s no exaggeration to say COVID-19 has devastated the job market. In just four weeks, 22 million Americans are out of work, and some companies may never even reopen their doors once all this is over.
Now, not every company is struggling to stay open. Essential businesses like grocery stores and pharmacies are desperate for employees, and Amazon is hiring 175,000 workers to keep up with all the online orders from people staying home.
