The local epidemic began to heat up in April this year, and entered a plateau period in May. The General Accounting Office announced today that the total number of employees in the industrial and service industries at the end of May was 8.142 million, a monthly decrease of 8,000, mainly due to the impact of the epidemic.
Chen Huixin said that some industries began to be affected by the epidemic in April. In May, the domestic demand-oriented industries were still affected more obviously. In terms of the number of employees and regular wages, the accommodation and catering industry decreased by 9,000 per month, and the monthly regular wages decreased by 1.52%. The wholesale and retail industry also showed a monthly decrease of 5,000 people and a monthly decrease of 0.71% in recurring wages. However, the manufacturing sector is still solid, still adding 6,000 people per month.
As for the changes in the labor market in the past year, Chen Huixin analyzed that in May and June last year, due to the level 3 alert of the epidemic, the number of employees who were employed decreased by 150,000 for two months, but as the epidemic slowed down, the cumulative increase from July to December last year 150,000 people, so at the end of last year, it has roughly returned to the level of employment in April last year.
However, Chen Huixin pointed out that due to seasonal factors and the end of some temporary jobs at the beginning of this year, the number of employees decreased, and the epidemic situation heated up later. The current number of employees is indeed still a little less than the 8.17 million people employed in April last year.
As for the changes in the number of employees and salaries in June, Chen Huixin said that the number of employees who were employed in June in previous years showed an increase in the number of workers in May, but there are currently two major variables inside and outside the country, one is the development of the domestic epidemic, and the other is the change of foreign economic conditions. It is therefore difficult to assess subsequent trends.
