Sectors Where Workers Find Re-Employment Quickly
Some of the sectors that saw laid-off workers finding re-employment rather quickly include entertainment and leisure, transportation and delivery, and manufacturing, thus implying that these set of sectors are prepared to weather the current economic storm and could also provide a secure position for workers who have been currently laid off from other roles.
