Overall, private payrolls lost 19.5 million jobs in April with private services losing 17.2 million and goods-producing industries losing 2.4 million.

Three other industries lost more than 2 million jobs each: professional and business services declined by 2.128 million with temporary help accounting for 842,000 of that total, retail lost 2.107 million workers, and health care and social-assistance industries fell by 2.087 million.
