By this summer, roughly 60 percent of that loss had been regained. For the last 18 months, Parker Harvey, principal economist for the Gulf Coast Workforce Board and Workforce Solutions, has been tracking the dynamic ups and downs of the labor market since it began and continued to rebound. What he found is that a year of unprecedented disruption demanded new ways of looking at data and gauging recovery.
