Started in February 2010, the great recession in the U.S. had eaten up 8.7 million jobs. After 4 years of long struggle the United States has finally recouped all lost jobs during those horrible recession days. According to U.S. Department of Labour 217,000 jobs were added in May against required 113,000 to pronounce the U.S. a recession free country.

But the report has many more interesting facts; During the financial crisis, though, Men were hit badly and lost almost double the jobs than Women, the recover came from the hand of Women who grabbed more number of jobs than what they had during recession.

Despite of such satisfactory performance of US economy, there are nearly 10 million people who are still unemployed and are engaged in job-hunting activities. However, the number turns out to be just 4% of total US population.

Besides, Professional and Business services have created nearly 19.1 million jobs, in total. Government has offered around 14 million jobs, while Retail trade has emerged another growing industry with 15.3 million jobs.
