As Job Losses Mount Due To Coronavirus Outbreak, Other Industries Are Ramping Up And Hiring Like Mad

(USA Features) Tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs because of coronavirus-related mandatory business closures, but other industries are ramping up operations and hiring a lot of workers.

“The healthcare industry, specifically nurses are being hired, along with shipping and delivery companies: Amazon is hiring 100,000 workers, mostly for fulfillment and delivery, and some UPS hubs are hiring.


Remote meetings and communication companies: Zoom is hiring, as are Slack and Microsoft Teams,” he added.


Granted, the job losses have been horrific since the virus pandemic has led most governors and mayors to order “non-essential” businesses shuttered.


But the fact that other sectors are hiring is a bright spot to build on once the restrictions are lifted, experts noted.


“Any movement in the economy is good when it comes to products, services and goods,” Moseley said.


“There are industries still making money in Texas, however, this will not make up the gap in our economy for the other sectors which are laying-off employees, making drastic cuts and even closing their doors completely.”


He added that the current economic upheaval is just temporary.


“There is light at the end of the tunnel. In the not-too-distant future, the pandemic will end and Texas will return to somewhat normal,” Moseley said, according to The Center Square.
