For communities of color, ‘recovery’ can be a vapid term. People of color consistently face rates of unemployment higher than what whites experience in the worst recessions. Meanwhile, people of color in the labor market are pulling in wages of 60 cents for every dollar that white people earn. If this is what recovery is going to look like, we’ve got a problem.
It’s time we take seriously that some people are locked out from the onset, and build a truly fair economy for everyone.
