5. I see both March and April were revised up

But considering the lower pay tier industries (restaurants, hospitality) are apparently having issues getting their "low wage" employees back, I expect if any decide to go on and raise their pay/benefits just a bit more, then that sector might start picking up steam. I think some of those "expectations" are apparently being based on people "immediately" going back to their old jobs when the lock downs/limits were removed and that didn't happen.

There is also now an issue of childcare as that sector has a shortage of employees (just read an article about it yesterday) and that limits those in other sectors from returning to work if they have no place for their non-school aged children to be during a work day.

This sortof reminds me of the type logistics maneuvers that were needed after the 9/11 ground stop of every flying craft (except military) and then "restarting the system" when the ground stop was lifted. Planes had to be moved from their "temporary" landing sites so they could be returned to their "home" airports in order to make room for those planes whose "home" airports were occupied by other stranded planes.

I.e., everything is "interconnected".
