IPC Statement on June’s Job Numbers


Reading time ( words)

The following statement is attributed to John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO, regarding June’s unemployment report from the U.S. Department of Labor. Based on the data, IPC estimates the electronics manufacturing industry gained 20,000 jobs.

“Headwinds remain, given economic uncertainties and operating restrictions related to COVID-19. But the employment numbers suggest electronics manufacturers are successfully adapting to the new environment by putting in place worker health practices that allow them to return to normal operating levels. If Coronavirus-related restrictions ease in the coming months, IPC predicts further job gains will wipe out a job deficit of 23,000 from April and May.”
