NEW YORK, May 8, 2020 (Xinhua) -- Pedestrians wearing face masks walk across a street in New York, the United States, on May 8, 2020. New data showed that U.S. employers cut a staggering 20.5 million jobs in April, erasing a decade of job gains since the global financial crisis and pushing the unemployment rate to a record 14.7 percent.
