The U.S. Labor Department reported Friday that the unemployment rate fell to 10.2%.

The American economy gained 1.8 million jobs in July, even as the coronavirus cases spiked in many parts of the country. 

The 1.8 million jobs added in July was below the 4.8 million jump in jobs in June, indicating that momentum had slowed on the heels of an economic boost, per the The New York Times.

Still, hiring is currently taking place across the cannabis sector. Here are the companies currently on the hunt for talent.
