Brian and Prof. Wolff discuss the state of unemployment in America. Politicians and the media talk constantly about the post-COVID economic recovery, but last month’s weak jobs report suggests that workers are still in the midst of crisis. And despite this dire situation, the unemployment relief programs passed at the onset of the pandemic have now expired.
