Over 50% of people in Los Angeles are now unemployed just one month into the quarantine.
More than half of the population of Los Angeles are now unemployed, according to a national survey from the USC Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research.
Researchers found that only 45% of LA workers are still employed, compared with 61% in mid-March as 1.3 million people have lost their jobs during the coronavirus crisis.
“In LA, there was a certain level of insecurity to begin with, and it has increased a little bit more than it has in the national average,” USC’s Jill Darling, survey director for the Understanding America Study, said according to LAist.
Minorities are being hit the hardest by this:
The research also found that ethnic minorities had been hit hardest by job losses across the country, with 15% of white people saying they had lost their jobs, while 18% of Latinos and 21% of black people reported job losses.
The lockdown has negative effects. The Mainstream Press loves to play up why the lockdown is so great but refuses to acknowledge the downsides of it.
Also, since the Mainstream Press is so obsessed with race is anyone going to ask Democrats why they are pushing policies that hurt minorities?
