Despite governors’ efforts to reopen state economies, this week’s jobless numbers brought more bad news: more than two million new unemployment claims. That makes almost 39 million jobs lost since the pandemic began.
But that economic pain isn’t being spread evenly. In fact, if you read the work of the Atlantic’s Annie Lowrey, it becomes obvious that the financial impacts of the coronavirus are highlighting and exaggerating the inequalities that already existed in our economy.
Diane and Annie spoke about who is hurting most, and what the government can do about it.
