The spread of coronavirus has really impacted hiring practices and job openings. In the shutdown phase alone, up to 53 million US jobs were vulnerable—a term used to encompass permanent layoffs, temporary furloughs, or reductions in hours and pay. While leisure and hospitality accounted for most of the earliest layoffs and furloughs, the share from industries such as retail trade, manufacturing, nonessential healthcare, and professional services has been growing. It is estimated that up to 57 million US jobs are now vulnerable, including more and more white-collar positions.
