- The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) monthly jobs report shows that the economy gained 194,000 jobs in September 2021. However, women experienced no net job gains, and actually went backward last month: while men gained 220,000 jobs in September, women lost 26,000 jobs. Moreover, the overall job increase in September was relatively small. It would take over 2 years of growth at September’s level to gain back the nearly 5 million jobs the economy has lost since February 2020.
