A good job is the surest path to economic security. It has always been at the heart of our nation’s political and social framework. However, Black workers face what amounts to occupational segregation; siloed into labor markets where they end up in lower paid jobs than whites and are less likely than white workers to get hired into stable, well-paying jobs.
Higher unemployment rates, fewer job opportunities, lower pay, subpar benefits, and greater job instability… “Bump that!”
