Long-term Unemployment Remains High Despite American Jobs Returning

"Reopen and vaccinations speed up. But there are millions of people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and who are still unemployed. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports asked Bud Johnson what he liked about his job driving a transit bus at the University of Delaware, and he uses a single word. Everything. The sights are great. The people I work for the great and it's just a pleasant atmosphere. But he hasn't had that in almost a year. Now. You got laid off from classes, but virtual, I eat two meals a day instead of three. I do go to the pre pantry truth from them. Johnson hasn't been called back yet or been told when, or If that will happen. I am looking forward to coming back. It was a great job in January 4 million people had been unemployed for six months or more. It's what economists call long term unemployment. And we haven't seen levels this high since the great recession that worries economists. Bill Sprigs, he says. Many employers stigmatize people who haven't worked in months. The longer someone's without a job, the harder it is to find a new one. So rather than the typical way you think of a line working you show up at the movie theater. I'm first in line. I've been here I'm next. It works in the opposite. The people who are newly unemployed get the first in line and what's worse, this will likely hit vulnerable workers even harder. Women and people of color have lost the most jobs during the pandemic. They already tend to be paid class and so long term unemployment can scar their earnings permanently. Ah McKenzie study predicted It could also take two years longer for them to recover those jobs. Here's co author Quay Lin Island group, the progress we see on closing the gender gap, even take of it out of the picture. Is so slow. And so then you pause that slow glacial progress and you make negative progress. It was deeply discouraging. There's another worry too. What if certain jobs don't ever come back? How people work and live has been changing dramatically during the pandemic, and that shaken up all kinds of jobs. One of the biggest shifts has been more people working from home. That's had ripple effects for Gloria Espinosa into last April. She cleaned offices in San Francisco. Superbly store. We got a visit from our supervisor, He gathered us all on the parking lot, and he talked to us and tell us that we were gonna be laid off. I was wondering God, why us? It was like receiving a bucket of cold water. That's the way I felt a year later, the employees whose work spaces she wants clean, are still remote. And so Espinosa is still unemployed. She knows there's no guarantee, but she feels confident she will be called back to her old job when offices reopened, be instructed bombs, a necessity to move Chapman on the whole. I think that actually is going to be probably the need of additional workers because we're gonna have to make sure that we can provide that. Extra clean a space that the workers deserve. On the other end of California, Carrie Belisle wonders what her work will look like in the future. She's been a tour guide for 35 years. We are in love, Toya. Has my Minnesota group like he's traveled. Grinding to a halt last spring, Belisle has tried to keep busy, even organizing virtual tours Join me Tuesday at two for my virtual presentation about counselor Deck finally began a new full time job. What's good here at a vaccine? Put it in San Diego. It's just nice to To chat with people and especially people that are getting vaccinated because they're all so happy and excited. While knows this new job won't be permanent, she's hopeful tour Busses will start rolling again. And she can go back to work in the field She's loved for so many years. Sam bring Glass NPR news.

Texas Public Radio's Dominic Anthony Walsh has more on the latest legal action. In the last minute complaint filed in federal court, a top Republican donor Congressional candidate and other Republicans are attempting to invalidate ballots cast through curbside voting in the Houston area.

The Republicans argued that only the state legislator has Theobald ity to authorize curbside voting and that Harris County over stepped by implementing the procedure designed to curb the spread of covered 19.

So after a bunch of back and forth, the commission on presidential debates decided the next one would be done Virtually when Trump refused to participate. The debate fell apart. Biden campaign said they'd fill that time by doing a town hall on ABC. Then came the news that Trump to would do a town hall.

This new legislation in Sacramento would allow homeowners to convert suburban single family homes into duplexes. Here's Casey ar w Jerome Campbell. If S P 11 20 is passed and signed. Property owners could not only convert the house into a duplex, they could also build a second home or duplex on the same lot. So it would double or even quadruple the number of homes allowed on a piece of land. Backers of the bill say the measure is more moderate than the failed legislation. SB 50. That bill would have required more density near transit centers and allowed construction of four plex is in single family neighborhoods. Critics say the new measure still downsizes the American dream of a single family home without really helping low income families. The bill does not mandate any protections for below market housing, raising concerns of developers gentrifying low income neighborhoods to provide more units on any given parcel.

"This is all things considered. I'm Elsa Chang that I Mari Shapiro. Joe Biden says he'll announce his running mate the first week in August. Two governors are reportedly on the short list. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Michelle Luhan Grisham of New Mexico. Governors have played an outsized role in the handling of the pandemic, which could make Thumann appealing choice. NPR's Sam Greenglass reports rewind a few months to march of this year. Grown. A virus cases were just starting to spike and around this time President Trump had a conference call with the nation's governors. Governor Wittmer said Trump told them to find their own supplies of ventilators. Here she is on MSNBC. Leader of the federal government tell us to work around the federal government because it's too too slow is just it's kind of mind boggling. To be honest, Trump fired back on Twitter, calling her half wit Wittmer. And his death in Michigan mounted. He said he told vice president Pence to ignore governors who don't show enough appreciation. Don't call the governor of Washington. You're wasting your time with him. Don't call The woman in Michigan, the back and forth thrust Wittmer into the national spotlight. Ah, former Michigan Senate Minority Leader who'd been governor just over a year. It also previewed a theme of this pandemic, a debate over who should take the lead in managing the crisis. In New Mexico Governor Luhan Grisham issued early stay at home orders. She served as New Mexico's health secretary before going to Congress and then running for governor in 2018. She told The Washington Post. The lack of national strategy surprised her. In my wildest dreams. I would not be spending my own specific time finding supplies and the right manufacturers and then chasing PP. The dynamic was unprecedented, says Kathleen Sebelius, the former Kansas governor who served as secretary of health and human services under President Obama. I think all governors found themselves in a very unique position and with A federal government who didn't want responsibility. So over and over again. I think governors have stepped into this vacuum seeking higher office, while managing the pandemic response could prove politically and practically challenging. But former Michigan governor Jim Blanchard says this is the perfect moment to put a governor on Biden's ticket. Blanchard is close with the Biden campaign and has advised several VP searches. You know, until the virus governors were in the shadows of government, it's been the senators who get the attention because they're on all the cable shows every night but planted says that's changed, he says. Whitmer and many governors calm under fire. Has projected a stark contrast with President Trump shows. They're doing things their managing things they care. They're taking action. They're not sitting around abdicating responsibility and finding someone to blame. Governors are also confronting protests over police brutality and racial injustice. That's amplified calls for Biden to pick a black woman. Tiana writer digs a University of Michigan regent who's active in Democratic politics, says Wittmer, who's white responded to the protests with empathy. Simon after American woman And I know that Governor Whitmer, she's able TTO have honest conversations on race. Those inter personal relationships is he's able tto have with all people then allows her to feel that pain and then understand what the protests were really about in battleground Michigan. Trump's approval rating for handling the Corona virus is underwater. Whit MERS has remained high. Despite protests and lawsuits over social distancing orders. Whitmer flipped the governor's mansion blew in 2018 and some Democrats think she could help bring home Michigan and other Blue Wall states. Luhan, Grisham could attract another block of voters. She's the first Democratic Latina governor in the country. This is also an opportunity not just to address 2020 but the long term. That's Gabriel Sanchez, a University of New Mexico professor and principal at the research group Latino decisions, particularly as we think about Texas being in play for the first time in my lifetime. Having a Latino on the ticket might solidify Texas flipping not only soon but also potentially for the long term for former Michigan governor Jim Blanchard. The case for picking a governor is simple. Good government is good politics. And lately, Blanchard says many governors have been leading the way. Sam Greenglass NPR NEWS Washington Today, the Trump Administration continued its pushed to rollback Dhaka, the program that protects young immigrants brought to the country illegally as Children. Recently, a number of courts had given those immigrants hope. Last month, the Supreme Court blocked the administration's effort to end the program. Then, according Maryland Told the administration to start accepting new DACA applicants will now the administration is refusing to do that. NPR's Joel Rose covers immigration and has been following this story. He joins us now, Rachel So what happened today? Exactly. While the Trump administration is officially acknowledging what we reported several weeks ago, it is rejecting new DACA applicants. This is the deferred action for childhood arrivals program. It protects immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as Children from deportation and also allows them to work here legally. The administration also went even further today and said it would renew DACA protections for immigrants already in the program, about 640,000 of them at last count, But But for just one year before those renewals lasted for two years about weight haven't courts repeatedly cited with Dhaka and told the administration to restart the program. Yes, there have been lots of court rulings on this. And of course, the case has gone all the way up to the U. S. Supreme Court. The high court did not rule on the legality of Dhaka itself. Instead. Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that the administration went about ending the program in the wrong way. And many immigration lawyer's figured that meant a return to the way that DACA worked before the administration tried to kill it, But that is not what has happened. We found several cases where immigrants tried to sign up for Dhaka for the first time. And got basically a form letter saying sorry, but the program is not accepting new applicants. And then just two weeks ago, according Maryland said explicitly that the administration had to go back in time to the way things were in September of 2017. When doctor was in full swing. So given all these court decisions is what the White House doing legal Well. Reporters asked that question repeatedly on a call with the White House today. And a White House official pointed to a new memo issued today by the acting secretary of Homeland Security, and the administration argues that memo gives them the right to reject new applications while they conduct what they're calling a comprehensive review of Dhaka. Remember, they tried to end DACA with the memo, saying it was created illegally by the Obama administration back in 2012 But the Supreme Court said that wasn't good enough. And that bag another question about this new memo, and the White House official was asked on the call today. Do you expect more litigation over this? To which he simply said three words? Yes, of course, huh? Okay, well, is there any word on that our immigration advocates planning to sue for sure, And I should say opponents of Dhaka, including several Republican state attorneys, general Are also suing. They're still in court, trying to get DACA declared illegal. And even before today's announcement, one of the immigrant rights groups that one at the Supreme Court had been building a test case to try to fully restore DACA. So a resolution on all of this is still nowhere in sight and certainly unlikely before the November election. And that's frustrating and infuriating. For many of these young immigrants, often called dreamers. They have been fighting this battle for years. They thought they wanted the Supreme Court, and they accuse the Trump administration of unlawfully refusing to comply with the courts. A group called United We Dream called This move today Quote an attack on undocumented people, unquote who live under the constant threat of deportation. That is NPR's Joel Rose. Thank you, Joel.

Governor, Wittmer said Trump told them to find their own supplies of ventilators. Here. She is on MSNBC year the leader of the federal government tell us to work around the federal government because it's too Too slow is just it's kind of mind boggling. To be honest, Trump fired back on Twitter, calling her half wit Wittmer and his death in Michigan mounted. He said he told vice president Pence to ignore governors who don't show enough appreciation. Don't call the governor of Washington. You're wasting your time with him. Don't call The woman in Michigan, the back and forth thrust Wittmer into the national spotlight. Ah, former Michigan Senate Minority Leader who'd been governor just over a year. It also previewed a theme of this pandemic, a debate over who should take the lead in managing the crisis. In New Mexico Governor Luhan Grisham issued early stay at home orders. She served as New Mexico's health secretary before going to Congress and then running for governor in 2018. She told The Washington Post. The lack of national strategy surprised her. In my wildest dreams. I would not be spending my own specific time finding supplies and the right manufacturers and then chasing PP. The dynamic was unprecedented, says Kathleen Sebelius, the former Kansas governor who served as secretary of health and human services under President Obama. I think all governors found themselves in a very unique position and with A federal government who didn't want responsibility. So over and over again. I think governors have stepped into this vacuum seeking higher office, while managing the pandemic response could prove politically and practically challenging. But former Michigan governor Jim Blanchard says this is the perfect moment to put a governor on Biden's ticket. Blanchard is close with the Biden campaign and has advised several VP searches. You know, until the virus governors were in the shadows of government, it's been the senators who get the attention because they're on all the table shows every night. But Blanchard says that's changed, he says Whitmer and many governors calm under fire. Has projected a stark contrast with President Trump. It shows they're doing things, their managing things they care. They're taking action. They're not sitting around abdicating responsibility and finding someone to blame. Governors are also confronting protests over police brutality and racial injustice. That's amplified calls for Biden to pick a black woman. Shauna writer digs a University of Michigan regent who's active in Democratic politics, says Wittmer, who's white responded to the protests with empathy. Simon after American woman And I know that Governor Whitmer, she's able TTO have honest conversations on race. Those interpersonal relationships that she's able tto have with all people, then allows her to feel that pain and then understand what the protests were really about in battleground Michigan. Trump's approval rating for handling the Corona virus is underwater. Whit MERS has remained high. Despite protests and lawsuits over social distancing orders. Whitmer flipped the governor's mansion blew in 2018 and some Democrats think she could help bring home Michigan and other Blue Wall states. Luhan, Grisham could attract another block of voters. She's the first Democratic Latina governor in the country. This is also an opportunity not just to address 2020 but the long term. That's Gabriel Sanchez, a University of New Mexico professor and principal at the research group Latino decisions, particularly as we think about Texas being in play for the first time in my lifetime. Having a Latino on the ticket might solidify Texas flipping not only soon but also potentially for the long term for former Michigan governor Jim Blanchard. The case for picking a governor is simple. Good government is good politics. And lately, Blanchard says many governors have been leading the way. Sam bring GLASS. NPR NEWS Washington You're listening to W N Y C. I'm Jamie Floyd.
