The Inequities of Job Loss and Recovery Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic. National Issue Brief #150
Sáenz, Rogelio; Sparks, Corey
Carsey School of Public Policy
While the overall national portrait of the impact of the virus on the economy and job situation is becoming increasingly clear, much less is known for different populations within the country. Job loss and recovery have been much more challenging for certain racial/ethnic, gender, and nativity groups. Policymakers and community leaders need information to monitor and act on the variations that exist in order to ensure that certain segments of the population are not left behind in the economic recovery from the pandemic. This research is one of the first efforts to provide a broad and comprehensive overview of the inequities in job loss and recovery over the last several months of the pandemic. The analysis highlights the wide variations in unemployment and the level of job loss over the last several months that have taken place to date across the nation's demographic groups that have historically suffered disparities in the workforce, including persons of color, women, and immigrants.
