The COVID-19 Pandemic shifted the workforce, especially here in New York as it was in the epicenter of the outbreak. Whether laid off, furloughed, or having to leave a job in order to attend to family needs like homeschooling or aging parents, things are beginning to shift back to a more normal way of life.
