This needs far more attention. A lot has been said about the number of women giving up their careers during the pandemic due to domestic demands, and that is awful, but far more serious, a question of sheer survival, is the millions of women who have no choice but to risk their own lives and their families’ health to keep food on the table, and as the article states, women of color are disproportionately in this at-risk group. There is almost no care for the very people keeping this country running in a pandemic.

I live in a state run by Republican fuckwits (mostly white males, and the rest are white women) whose only response is to cut all chance of social support and safety measures for all workers and their families, and now the idiots are trying to repeal all mask mandates.
