The pandemic’s upending of the way we work and live has roiled the job market — triggering hiring surges in some sectors and massive slumps in others.

Why it matters: Look for some of the pain to last beyond the end of the pandemic. “If some of the increase in remote work, distance learning and online entertainment is permanent, these jobs will be threatened by the new at-home economy,” says Julia Pollak, a labor economist at ZipRecruiter.

By the numbers: Here are the jobs that saw the greatest declines in postings between mid-February and mid-May, according to ZipRecruiter data shared with Axios:

  1. Uber/Lyft Driver (-91%) 
  2. Flight Attendant (-90%) 
  3. Car Washer (-87%)
  4. Tour Guide (-85%)
  5. Retail Store Associate (-84%) 
  6. Event/Conference Planner (-82%) 
  7. Hotel Staff (-82%) 
  8. Office Manager (-81%)
  9. Chef (-80%) 
  10. Catering Assistant (-80%)
  11. Commercial Pilot (-79%) 
  12. Ticket Seller (-75%)
  13. Usher (-73%)
  14. Valet (-70%) 
  15. Actor (-70%)
  16. Musician (-69%) 
  17. Loss Prevention Specialist (-62%) 
  18. Barber (-58%)
  19. Commercial Property Manager (-49%) 
  20. Front Desk Associate (-47%)

President Biden will seek a five-year extension of the New START nuclear arms control pact with Russia before it expires on Feb. 5, senior officials told the Washington Post.

Why it matters: The 2010 treaty is the last remaining constraint on the arsenals of the world's two nuclear superpowers, limiting the number of deployed nuclear warheads and the bombers, missiles and submarines which can deliver them.

Facebook refers Trump ban to independent Oversight Board for review

Facebook's independent Oversight Board has accepted a referral from the platform to review its decision to indefinitely suspend former President Trump.

Why it matters: While Trump critics largely praised the company's decision to remove the then-president's account for potential incitement of violence, many world leaders and free speech advocates pushed back on the decision, arguing it sets a dangerous precedent for free speech moving forward.

President Biden plans to keep Christopher Wray as director of the FBI, CNN first reported and an administration official confirmed to Axios.

The big picture: Wray, who was nominated by former President Trump in 2017 after he fired former FBI Director James Comey, came under heavy criticism from Trump and his allies over the past year.
