In prepared remarks Nela Richardson, chief economist for ADP, said, “The labor market continues to post a sluggish recovery across the board. We’re seeing large-sized companies increasingly feeling the effects of COVID-19, while job growth in the goods producing sector pauses. With the pandemic still in the driver’s seat, the service sector remains well below its pre-pandemic levels; however, this sector is one that will likely benefit the most over time with re-openings and increased consumer confidence.”
