More than half of Los Angeles workers are now unemployed, according to a national survey.
Research from the USC Downside Center for Economic and Social Research found that only 45% of LA residents are still employed — down 16% since mid-March.
This means an estimated 1.3 million Angelenos have lost their jobs during the coronavirus crisis.
