Post-COVID-19 economy will put people back to work, but it won’t be in all the same jobs: Don Pittis

a sign on a wooden pole: Real estate data later today from the Canadian Real Estate Association is expected to show persistent strength, but post-recovery employment will depend on a different set of jobs.

Real estate data later today from the Canadian Real Estate Association is expected to show persistent strength, but post-recovery employment will depend on a different set of jobs.
