Arizona nears full recovery of jobs lost in pandemic, but state is not there yet

By Russ Wiles | Arizona Republic

Arizona’s employment totals continue to rebound from the COVID-19 outbreak, with Gov. Doug Ducey on Thursday proclaiming that all private-sector jobs were recovered.

But that’s not the whole picture. The state’s job totals including government positions still haven’t rebounded fully from before the pandemic emerged as a serious health threat, necessitating the lockdown of broad sectors of the economy.

Also, Arizona’s unemployment rate remains well above where it was early last year — and it’s above the current national jobless figure.

Still, Ducey’s office trumpeted the latest report from the state Office of Economic Opportunity as a further sign of momentum.

“Less than a year and a half after the initial economic disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, Arizona has already recovered more than 100% of private-sector jobs, representing one of the fastest jobs recoveries in the nation,” the Governor’s Office said.

Arizona is not quite there yet
