Today’s Bureau of Labor Statistics Jobs Report shows the number of jobs added in February was above market expectations.1 Unemployment rates for Latina women decreased slightly in February 2022, while the rates for Black women increased.
NDWA Labs’ February Report shows that the percentage of jobless domestic worker respondents decreased to 22%, compared to 26% in January. While joblessness this month is back to the level we saw in the last quarter of 2021, this still represents more than double the 9% who reported having no jobs before COVID-19.2
