It would be irresponsible to say that all of these people without a job are lazy, getting a free ride off the government or worse. There are legitimate reasons that people may be unemployed. For one, many may want to get back to working but can’t because childcare services may still be shut or limiting attendance. And it’s not like back-to-school is going smoothly. Bloomberg News reports that over the past month, with kindergarten through 12th grade in session, the country has reported almost 1 million Covid cases among those under 18. As of Sept. 19, 2,000 schools nationwide had closed, an 18% increase from a week earlier, according to the Burbio tracker.
