“She-cession” Black Women and the Pandemic Recession
What do you do if you’ve been impacted? How do you keep your head above water?
At the beginning of pandemic shutdown… we saw hundreds of thousands lose their jobs. A new survey by zillow says things are particularly bad for women. According to the study, at the height of the pandemic in May, unemployment claims for women were up at staggering 1368% year over year. Working mothers were three times more likely than working fathers to be out of work because of children being at home because of virtual learning and closed childcare centers. This recession could be better termed a “she-session”… especially for black women. So what do you do if you’ve been impacted? How do you keep your head above water?
