There is one big bubble showing that during the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, there were 2.1 million employed people with reduced hours.

In the chart area is written "The March increase in the number of employed people with lost hours was 8 times greater than the 1998 Ice Storm (employed people with hours lost refers, here, to those working zero hours or less than half of usual hours)."
