The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) monthly jobs report shows that the economy gained 210,000 jobs in November 2021. Women gained 36.2% of these jobs, or 76,000, while men gained 134,000 jobs last month. Despite these gains, it would take over 18 months of growth at November’s level to gain back the over 3.9 million jobs the economy has lost since February 2020.
