Domestic Workers Economic Situation Report · August 2022

Released: July 2, 2021

Today’s Bureau of Labor Statistics Jobs Report shows the unemployment rates for Black and Latinx adults ticked up in June 2021 — and remain higher than before the pandemic and higher than for other demographic groups. NDWA Labs’ June Report shows a similar trend: unemployment is still very high for Spanish-speaking domestic workers, and the percentage of jobless respondents in June was unchanged compared to May. In June 2021, 25% of domestic worker respondents were still out of work, much higher than the 9% who reported having no jobs before COVID-19.

For the first time in this report, we present quarterly comparisons between the second quarter of 2021 (April, May, June) and the same quarter in 2020 for certain indicators.
