JFF CEO Maria Flynn in “U.S. Unemployment Claims Expected to Hold at High Levels”

JFF President and CEO Maria Flynn was quoted in a November 12 Dow Jones newswire article about expectations for the U.S. Department of Labor’s weekly unemployment report.

The article, published on Morningstar.com before the release of the report, noted that, despite recent declines in the number of unemployment claims, the labor market likely faces a long road to full recovery as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.

Flynn concurred, saying, “The state of the labor market is precarious. We are at risk of backtracking, given the surge of COVID cases in so many parts of the country.”
