Women made up more than two-thirds of Vermont's unemployment insurance claims last year. Women left the workforce at higher rates than men all over the U.S., but Vermont's rate is the highest in the country. This hour, we talk about the economic toll of COVID-19 on women in Vermont's workforce, especially women of color.
Our guests are:
- Stephanie Seguino, professor of economics at University of Vermont
- Michelle Holder, associate professor of economics at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York
- Jess Horner, assistant director of John Graham Housing and Services in Vergennes
