This REALLY looks like a back to school story, esp for women. Job losses in September wiped out all the July and August job gains for married people, while non-married people, particularly men, have opened a huge gap. 4/

The gender gap is alive and well. This summer has been a single man’s recovery Single women, who are much more likely to be parents, have regained some of the initial job loss. Not as strongly as single men tho But these marriage gaps… 😯 5/

Caveats: 1)Doing marriage b/c no mothers & fathers yet (it’s coming), so child care story != perfect match 2)So much in September, hoping it’s driven by seasonal adjustment (which is v hard rn) 3)These are household survey data, so don’t line up w/ payrolls [fin]

I live in an area surrounded by Trump supporters, and I suspect that Trump’s GOP likes this virus precisely BECAUSE it is restoring the patriarchy. Women being forced out of paid work to take care of the kids and the elderly? Perfect. And it kills more minorities? Even better.

We need to ditch the term “toxic masculinity” and go with “toxic patriarchy.” The Trump GOP response to the virus is defined by it.
