The US labor market seems to step up its recovery process, according to latest official report

First-time jobless claims totaled 547,000, which was below the 607,000 estimated and a new low for the pandemic era. The progress made on vaccinating people - nearly 3 million doses administrated daily - contributed to the recovery.
