Economic impact of COVID-19 among visible minority groups / by Feng Hou, Kristyn Frank and Christoph Schimmele.: CS45-28/1-2020-39E-PDF

"The economic lockdown triggered by COVID-19 has led so far to disproportionate employment losses among lower-paid workers and young workers. Its impact on visible minorities is currently less known. Since visible minorities often have lower incomes and more precarious employment than the White population, their ability to buffer the income losses due to work interruptions is likely more limited. This study examines whether this is the case or not, shedding light on the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on different visible minority groups."
