Thank you Iryna and Katy, I was getting ready for tomorrow.
See you on Wednesday, BUT – a very interesting fact:
A new study based on public COVID social sciences data in Brazil shows that a new
class of vulnerable citizens has appeared here:
—> white men and women with university education – who work in occupations
considered as non-essential by the government.
They are called the “new vulnerable” and compose 46% of the Brazilian work force.
Moreover, non-essential jobs have many more women than men.
Thus, a much higher rate of COVID-unemployed women than men.
“traditionally vulnerable” – non-white, little education – are still more vulnerable
than the new vulnerable. Black women are the most vulnerable of all.
