Preliminary estimates suggest that a net 152,000 fewer workers were employed by America’s private (nonprofit and for-profit) and state-controlled institutions of higher education in September, compared with August, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which calculates industry-specific employee figures. The net number of workers who left HE institutions from February to September now sits at around 484,000.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics data don’t account for the many employees who lost their jobs because of the scaled-back business of such companies as those under contract to prepare food and clean facilities on fully operational campuses.
