My 2 biggest worries about the job market: 1. There are still 1.5 million women missing from the labor force (they dropped out and haven't returned). Many are women of color. 2. Daycare & education are among the **least** recovered jobs. Daycare -10% vs Feb 2020 Educ: -5.5%

@byHeatherLong Yes, hopefully some of the difference between the 1.1mn jobs added in the household survey and the 210k in the payroll survey is people starting in-home daycares.

@byHeatherLong @JDiamond1 Who on Earth would want to teach American children right now, with the way their parents behave? You couldn't pay me enough money to deal with that.

@byHeatherLong @LOLGOP I would both admire and worry about the sanity of a person who would want to enter the education field right now. -5.5% seems low

@byHeatherLong I'm a teacher. The education market will never recover. We don't even have substitutes. Almost every day, I have to substitute for my absent colleagues as well as teach, which doubles my class sizes. Bad for the kids. Four teachers have quit so far since August in my school. 1/

@byHeatherLong I wonder if that’s somehow tied to Covid? Sarcasm because obviously it is. I wonder if lax workplace standards have caused folks to quit in both. Because it has. But I will say at least we have net job growth vs job losses under Trump - that sexist lost millions of jobs for women

@byHeatherLong @kathrynw5 Daycare and education are also among the poorest compensated jobs. Maybe those who previously held those jobs have gone to greener pastures?
