    Biden Has Elevated the Job of Science Adviser. Is That What Science Needs?

    On the campaign trail, Joseph R. Biden Jr. vowed to unseat Donald J. Trump and bring science back to the White House, the federal government and the nation after years of presidential attacks and disavowals, neglect and disarray. As president-elect, he got off to a fast start in January by nominating Eric S. Lander, a top biologist, to be his science adviser.

    The Job Market Is Tighter Than You Think

    One set of numbers shows a labor market in dire straits. Total employment, despite March’s jump, is still down 8.4 million from its pre-pandemic peak, on a par with the worst point of the 2007-09 recession and its aftermath. While the unemployment rate at 6{c25493dcd731343503a084f08c3848bd69f9f2f05db01633325a3fd40d9cc7a1} is lower than in 2009, it is above 9{c25493dcd731343503a084f08c3848bd69f9f2f05db01633325a3fd40d9cc7a1} when people not counted as unemployed because they dropped out of the labor force or were misclassified are added back, according to the Federal Reserve.
