A recent article from Politico examines job market trends including the impact Covid-19 has had on women in the workforce and jobs that are most at risk to be automated. According to this article, women were severely impacted by the pandemic with many leaving the workforce since March 2020. Additionally, data found that cashiers' and stock clerks' jobs are some of the most at risk to be automated as many employers have invested in automation technology to limit face-to-face contact.


With new data emerging about the future of work and workers who have been displaced as a result of the pandemic it’s a crucial time for navigators to continue supporting these jobs seekers in navigating the job market.
