Texas Border Business

The last couple of months have brought major devastation to the nation’s workforce.  the employment debacle is apparent in the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) recently released employment figures for April.  The BLS report showed that the US. unemployment rate rose from 4.4% in March to 14.7% in April.  The tripling of the unemployment rate was driven by job losses in practically all industries.  Stay-at-home orders saw teachers, cashiers, machine operators, dishwashers, dentists, and many others lose their sources of income.
