"Several days of delay and a lot of back and forth, President Trump signed the $900 Billion Cove in 19 relief package.

Marketplaces Mitchell Hartman is here to help explain a Mitchell I can't really get to be here. So Mitchell by signing this on Sunday, the president let a couple of federal pandemic unemployment benefit programs expire briefly. Why is this one day gap such a big deal? Well, John. Most benefits are paid on a weekly basis. And when President Trump signed the relief bill yesterday this week had already begun. So it looks like none of the benefits could be given for the week when the bill actually became law. And people were thinking that meant 20 million people would go without the federal jobless benefit extension and the benefit for gig workers and the $300 a week top up Ernie to desk E, an economist at Evercore IAS.

It may take a couple weeks. We know the state systems aren't great at Killing these benefits out, especially when they change, But everyone eventually should get back pay that they're entitled to.

So for a few minutes, we're going to look at what the past year has meant for women. In this economy. We got ahold of to belly Cara's Ana. She covers the economy for the 19th news to belly welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me. How are women doing in this economy at the beginning of this year, pre pandemic in the before times Well, if we can pause and think back to the before times, which feel like several eons away from us. Right before this pandemic started in December of 2019 women surpassed men as the majority of the labor force for only the second time in history. The only other time I had happened was during the great recession when so many men lost their jobs, that women actually surpassed them. And so we had reached a point right before all this started where that happened again and that had happened naturally through So much growth that was taking place for women in the labor force where they got to that 50 50.4% just edging out men. And then what happened? Well, then what happened was the start of this country's first female recession. And what that meant was that the jobs that really went away this year the vast majority where jobs that were held by women, and that was unusual that had never happened. This year. We're looking at retail hospitality, the care fields. Those were the job's not went away. And so that in about three months what we lost, we're about 11 million jobs held by women in this economy. On DeSoto. It started what we have when are still enduring to this day is this recession that has hit women so much harder than men? And there has been an enduring peace of this, which is the second part of it is this childcare crisis that we're also living in? I want to come back to the childcare crisis in a moment, But a lot of your writing has highlighted the fact that In this first ever she session. It's hitting women of color particularly hard. Can you talk about what that trend has looked like Yeah, that has been, you know, one of the saddest parts of this entire experience. If we look at unemployment, for example, it's just one measure. But unemployment for women peaked around like 15 15.5%, But for Latinas, it hit 20.2% for black women. It hit 16.5%. So much of that goes back to this occupational segregation that we talk about, sometimes where it's what are the fields that these folks are pushed into. And ultimately those fields are a lot of caregiving fields nursing health care. I mean, we we wrote a story recently about the first people to get vaccines across the country. We looked at every single state and in the vast majority two thirds you were looking at a woman and in most cases, you were looking at a woman of color. And so that I think spoke eons about these are the people who are most at risk. Can you talk about just this astronomical number of women leaving the workforce. Yeah, I think the Shocking number came to us in September when 865,000 women left the labor force and it was just so clear what had happened, You know school was back and school was back virtually And so you had all of these women who were at home and looking at this new school year they were just making a decision. And it was a difficult decision for a lot of women who said, I'm just going to quit my job. And care for my kids, because there's not there's no safety net for me right now..

So much of that goes back to this occupational segregation that we talk about, sometimes where it's what are the fields that these folks are pushed into. And ultimately those fields are a lot of caregiving fields nursing health care. I mean, we we wrote a story recently about the first people who need to get vaccines across the country. We looked at every single state and in the vast majority two thirds you were looking at a woman and in most cases, you were looking at a woman of color. And so that I think spoke eons about these are the people who are most at risk. Can you talk about just this astronomical number of women leaving the workforce. Yeah, I think the Shocking number came to us in September when 865,000 women left the labor force and it was just so clear what had happened, You know school was back and school was back virtually And so you had all of these women who were at home and looking at this new school year they were just making a decision. And it was a difficult decision for a lot of women who said, I'm just going to quit my job. And care for my kids, because there's not there's no safety net for me right now..

"News. I'm Ari Shapiro. An explosion ripped through downtown Nashville early this morning, injuring at least three people. The force blew out parts of buildings and shattered windows. People just waking up on Christmas Day could hear the blast miles away. Local and federal investigators say it appears to have been unintentional act. We're joined now by Damon Mitchell of member station W. PLN in Nashville. Hi, Damon High already what else can you tell us about the explosion? We know. Police responded to a shots fired call at about 5:38 A.m. this morning when I got there. Police didn't find a gunman when they arrive, but they did see a parked RV that they called suspicious. Police also heard an audio recording from the Harvey telling people to evacuate. Police called the bomb squad and the RV exploded around 6:30 A.m. as they waited for the Bomb squad team to arrive Then the blast was so strong that it knocked down one officer and actually gave another officer temporary hearing loss. Nashville is known as music City. Of course, thousands of tourists flocked there every year. Can you just describe the area where the explosion happened? That's right. And this'll area isn't the busiest part of downtown, but it is a popular strip that stuff off from the heavy tourist area where all the country music Monkey talks are there are bars, businesses, hotels and historic brick build high rises where people do live. And one thing I'll say is that today is Christmas, the holiday. It's Cold here in Nashville s. Oh, there weren't a whole lot of people out. Interesting and I understand you went to the scene earlier today. What does it look like? Right now There's shattered glass and debris covering the sidewalks and rolls. This insisted, have their windows blown out. You also noticed burned up vehicles. There were small fires when they exposed it. First happened. The crime scene is blocked off. The scene actually consists of several blocks is not just like a Contained area, but there are plenty of onlookers outside kind of standing around and shocking disbelief at the moment. Now the FBI is investigating the case working with local police and other agencies. Have we heard anything more about a possible motive or who may have done this? That's the big question that their wedding to get answers. All right now, we don't know anything about a possible models. We do know that there are focusing, of course on the RV that's kind of the big subject. Right now. A couple questions are where it's from who parked their RV there? How long was it? Their downtown Nashville is an area with a lot of cameras in police are hopeful that they'll be able to use that to their advantage. They'll be reviewing footage and asking residents who live in the area to call in with any tips. Um, and also interviewing witnesses as they come up throughout the day, and, you know, investigators are currently looking for clues. Just to kind of get a better picture on what a timeline is and what the motive was. And just trying to get a better handle on who the suspects could possibly be. That's Damon Mitchell of member station WPL. And in Nashville, where authorities are investigating the explosion that happened early this morning, injuring three people, Damon, Thank you for your reporting, especially on this holiday. Thank you already appreciate it. If President Trump does not agree to sign the latest coronavirus relief bill, it could threaten the most significant climate change legislation in over a decade. The package includes tax credit extensions for wind and solar power and more money for research into cleaner forms of energy. But even more significant, NPR's Jeff Brady reports There's a phase down of heat trapping gasses currently used in refrigerators and air conditioners. These gasses are called hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs. They're great in air conditioners and refrigerators, but when they escape into the atmosphere there an incredibly potent greenhouse gas Have more than 1000 times the heat trapping power of carbon dioxide. Under the new deal, 85% of these HF seas would phase out over 15 years. Environmental groups supported the legislation. So did the A C and refrigeration industries. Samantha Slater, with the Air Conditioning Heating and Refrigeration Institute, says her members see business opportunity in the change. We want to make the new refrigerants here in the United States right and then export them across the world as well. The legislation would fulfill an international agreement to phase out HFCs from the final days of the Obama administration. US still hasn't ratified what was dubbed the Kigali amendment. But much of the rest of the world has that left US companies worried that foreign competitors would dominate their changing industries. With everyone meeting the same phase down requirement, Those companies say they could better compete. Now, if you don't know much about refrigerants in your home, Don't worry, Slater says. You wouldn't need to do anything. No one needs to go out and buy a new air conditioner. The air conditioner they have will work until the end of its useful life. And there will be refrigerant available to use for the contractors that come into your home to service that equipment. Same for your refrigerator. Still for climate change, this would be a big deal. Air conditioning and refrigeration is growing, especially in developing countries. David Doniger with the natural resource is defense counsel says With the existing HFC refrigerants, you would have seen about the equivalent of 70 billion tons of CEO to adage the atmosphere in the form of HFCs between now and 2050. That would have made climate change worse. The question now is whether the U. S. Will pass this legislation and join other countries in reducing the use of HFC refrigerants, Doniger says globally, this phase down will prevent about a half degree Celsius of global warming. Since the goal of the Paris agreement is to limit warming toe under two degrees. This change is significant. Doniger says there's something else that made him optimistic about the bipartisan deal. Environmental groups and affected industries agreed. This legislation is important. It's proof that the climate problem is so real and so serious that The underlying current in industry and in Congress is running towards solutions. Republicans supported this HFC phase down despite a Trump administration that has been hostile to new climate policies. As president elect Biden takes office next month with his ambitious climate plan, those involved in this deal hope it will become a model for future efforts and that it will signal to the rest of the world that the U. S. Will once again get serious about addressing climate change. Jeff Brady NPR news Now to a remote area of Yunan province in southwestern China, where a rare congregation of Catholic Tibetans lives.
