Coronavirus sparks layoffs across New York region
from The Wall Street Journal
Tens of thousands of people have filed for unemployment benefits across the tri-state area, with layoffs likely to continue as businesses remain closed to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The job losses mark a sharp turnaround for a region that was seeing robust employment growth before the pandemic prompted the governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to order many businesses closed and restaurants and bars restricted to takeout and delivery.
