White House's Hassett expects June turning point in U.S. employment -CNN

WASHINGTON, May 22 (Reuters) - White House Adviser Kevin Hassett said on Friday he expects that May will mark another dismal month for U.S. employment, but June could mark a turning point for the massive joblessness caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ll see a very bad number for May and then I think that in June it will start to head in the right direction,” he told CNN, adding that he believes a fourth stimulus bill meant to stanch coronavirus-induced economic pain is coming “sooner rather than later.” (Reporting by Lisa Lambert Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
