COVID-19 and the disappearance of millions of working women

If it wasn’t clear before this month’s job numbers, it is now: the pandemic is turning back the clock for women.

In September, more than 1.1 million workers left the labor force, meaning they were no longer working or looking for work. A full 80 percent of those workers were women, with Latinas especially overrepresented. In fact, a net 2.65 million women have left the labor force since February. These numbers are unprecedented. Before this year, January 1958 held the record for women’s labor force losses. In that month 62 years ago, 550,000 women left the labor force — hundreds of thousands fewer than this September. 

Alternatively, if we look at labor force participation rates, 56.8 percent of women were in the labor force in September, compared to 59.2 percent in February. The current rate was last seen late in the Reagan administration. We have lost more than a generation

Panthers take enhanced precautions against virus

The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

The Carolina Panthers are taking enhanced precautions against the coronavirus following their exposure to Falcons defensive tackle Marlon Davidson during Sunday’s win at Atlanta. The Falcons placed Davidson on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday.

Carolina has entered the NFL’s “intensive protocol.” The team is still scheduled to practice Wednesday afternoon in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Bears.

Under the new protocols established this week, all coaches and staff must wear masks at practice and all players must wear a face shield or mask. Players can remove their helmets for breaks but must be more than 6 feet away from one another.

Ford delays Escape PHEV to 2021 model year after EU recalls

See you… soon, I guess? Maybe? Ford wasn’t exactly clear.

Delays are never fun, but sometimes, they are in the best interest of every party. After having to recall some of its plug-in hybrid vehicles in Europe, it appears a hotly anticipated US model will show up to the party a little later than Ford had hoped.

Ford is shifting production of the Escape Plug-In Hybrid until the 2021 model year, according to the automaker. “We are moving full scale production of Escape PHEV to the 2021 model year,” a Ford spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Roadshow. “The first Escape PHEVs will be sold next year.”

That’s not necessarily the interesting part. As of two weeks ago, Ford Authority reported that Escape PHEV models would begin production in January 2021 while, according to the report, still being sold under the 2020 model year. It’s unclear whether or

Anita Hill Study Finds Women Twice as Likely to Be Bullied at Work

Bullying runs rampant in Hollywood and is largely unchecked, serving as a gateway to sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace. And women are twice as likely to experience abusive workplace conduct than men.

These troubling, yet perhaps unsurprising, pieces of information come from Anita Hill’s Hollywood Commission, which has released its third round of research from a groundbreaking industry-wide survey that aims to improve workplace safety and equality across all of entertainment. The survey, which was conducted over the course of three months, included nearly 10,000 participants who are working in Hollywood.

“I was told that, ‘It’s not illegal to be an a–hole,’” one survey participant wrote anonymously.

“I see that bullying is becoming more and more of an issue — it’s just an abuse of power in a different form,” another anonymous participant said. “And if you don’t put up with it, they will hire someone else who

Model: Mass. to reach almost 10,000 coronavirus deaths within weeks

The state continues to edge toward the grim milestone of 10,000 deaths due to the coronavirus.

A University of Massachusetts model suggests the state’s tally could stand at 9,991 coronavirus deaths by Nov. 7, though researchers noted the numbers could range between 9,859 and 10,187.

Last week, the model had suggested the state would see 9,967 deaths a week earlier, by Oct. 31.

The model numbers reflect both confirmed and probable coronavirus deaths. The state had tallied 9,630 confirmed and probable deaths as of Tuesday.

The rate of deaths reported each day has declined after a terrifying climb this spring. The model projects it will continue to decline gradually in the next few weeks. But the heartbreaking numbers have not gone to zero.

The model also projects a gradual decline in confirmed and probable coronavirus cases. Governor Charlie Baker has acknowledged a recent rise in cases, but says the state
