What little recovery there has been in employment numbers is not reaching Black and Hispanic women.

Driving the news: The latter’s jobless rates in comparison to early 2020 are 3.3% greater than those of white women, according to the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Why it matters: Half of Latinas in the U.S. say they’ve had trouble paying for basic necessities like food, housing or childcare in the past year, and almost half also say their savings are less than $300 dollars, an inequity that predates the pandemic but grew during it, per a recent survey.

  • The current situation has already undone four years of women’s labor gains in OECD countries.
  • In Latin America, between 25% and 31% of women have no income of their own and have been sidelined into dependency, according to U.N. statistics.
  • Women historically struggle much more to return to a job after economic crises while also carrying the burden of unpaid domestic work and childcare.

JPMorgan Chase makes investing in women’s success a key priority

JPMorgan Chase is committed to fueling female ambition and advancing financial equality. The company’s Women on the Move program aims to:

  • Recruit and retain more women.
  • Increase women’s representation at all levels.
  • Propel more women into leadership positions across the company.

Women steer global economic recovery

One big difference between 2021 and 2009: Many of the world's top economic officials this time around are women.

The big picture: Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai are front and center on U.S. efforts, Reuters reports.

Rahm Emanuel questioned on murder of Laquan McDonald in confirmation hearing

Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke about the murder of Laquan McDonald during his Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday to become the U.S. ambassador to Japan, saying that "there's not a day or a week that has gone by in the last seven years I haven't thought about this."

Catch up quick: McDonald was a Black teenager who was fatally shot 16 times by Chicago police during Emanuel's tenure as the city's mayor. The shooting triggered massive protests, both because of its nature and the fact that the officers' body-cam footage was concealed for years.
