Did you know?
- The pandemic in Minnesota has taken a particular toll on individuals who were earning less than $14.70 an hour pre-COVID. They are most likely to still be out of work.
- Black Minnesotans have been disproportionately impacted by layoffs during the pandemic. While they make up 5.9% of the MN labor force, they represent more than 10% of MN unemployment claimants.
- Individuals who have no education beyond high school are overrepresented among unemployment claimants (37.7%) and have the longest duration of unemployment.
You can help by:
- Reaching out to the Interfaith Employment Services team. They are eager to partner with local employers who have job opportunities that provide (or can lead to) family-sustaining wages. Contact Ann today!
- Making a donation to the Prevent Hunger campaign, which supports Employment Services at Interfaith Outreach.
