On July 16, the Arizona Commerce Authority released its June 2020 employment numbers for Maricopa County. The report showed that after an avalanche of losses, jobs are starting to rebound.
Between February and April, the number of people employed in Maricopa County dropped by 207,000. This drove the number of people with jobs in April down to 1,974,800. The last time we had less than 2M people employed in a given month was July 2018.
Since April, jobs have been rebounding here. This most recent jobs report shows that the number of people employed in Maricopa County is now back over 2M. June gained 14,000 jobs over May, and May gained 30,300 jobs over April.
Although we still have a way to go, jobs have bounced back by 44,300 (21.4%).
