Folk står i kø for at hente frisk mad i en Los
Angeles Regional Food Bank der giver 2.000 kasser med dagligvarer, da spredningen af ​​coronavirus-sygdommen (COVID-19) fortsætter i Los Angeles, Californien, USA, 9. april 2020.
Mere end halvdelen af ​​befolkningen i Los Angeles er nu arbejdsløse, ifølge en national undersøgelse fra USC Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research.

Forskere fandt, at kun 45% af LA-arbejdstagere stadig er ansat, sammenlignet med 61% i midten af ​​marts, da 1,3 millioner mennesker har mistet deres job under coronavirus-krisen.

'I LA var der et vist usikkerhedsniveau til at begynde med, og det er steget lidt mere end det har gjort i det nationale gennemsnit,' sagde USCs Jill Darling, undersøgelsesdirektør for Understanding America Study, ifølge LAist.


The research also found that ethnic minorities had been hit hardest by job losses across the country, with 15% of white people saying they had lost their jobs, while 18% of Latinos and 21% of black people reported job losses.

"Under normal circumstances losing a job without access to benefits would be bad enough, but in the current situation, chances of finding a new job are likely to be close to nonexistent," Arie Kapteyn, director of the USC Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research, said in a statement seen by the LA Times.

"These changes are nothing less than catastrophic for those affected."

On Thursday, the Labor Department reported that 5.2 million Americans filed for unemployment insurance in the week that ended April 11. Of these, 660,966 were Californians.

The report brought the four-week total of US workers filing for unemployment to 22.03 million, which means that coronavirus-related layoffs have effectively erased the 22 million jobs that the US economy added since the post-Great Recession recovery starting in mid-2009.

"We wiped that out so fast," Heidi Shierholz, a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute, told Business Insider. "It's mind-boggling."
