More than two years into the public health emergency, individuals and families continue to experience the ongoing economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent job numbers show that the U.S. economy is on a path to recovery as jobs return and labor force participation increases at a steady pace. However, even with these positive trends, women of color continue to face disproportionate challenges.
To create an equitable path forward in economic recovery, we must ensure that the quality of jobs grows alongside the number of people employed. Building a resilient and sustainable recovery for women of color requires addressing the lack of benefits, worker protections, and well-paying jobs so that women of color can thrive.
