Washington (AP) — US employers announced record 9.3 million jobs in April, and the US economy resumed at a tremendous rate.

Job vacancies increased 12% from 8.3 million in March.

However, employers employed only 6.1 million people, an increase of 1% from March.

Hotels and restaurants, which had to be closed or shortened due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus, have reopened and reported that the number of job openings has increased the most.

The number of Americans who quit their jobs in April increased by 11% to about 4 million, a record high since 2000.

The Ministry of Labor reported on Friday that the US economy created 559,000 new jobs in May, dropping the unemployment rate from 6.1% in April to 5.8%. Employment numbers are usually considered exceptional. However, as the economy recovered from the coronavirus recession, some economists expected a much faster increase in employment. The United States still lacks 7.6 million jobs compared to February 2020.
