Working from home reveals another fault line in America’s racial and educational divide

At the Bath Iron Works on Maine’s Kennebec River, workers are showing up by the hundreds to build ships for the Navy. At Mike Doherty’s auto repair shop in Everett, Wash., three mechanics continue to fix faulty transmissions and leaky radiators. And while the McDonald’s in Kansas City is closed to sit-down customers, the drive-through window still needs tending, as does the french fryer.

While many people across the country are hunkered down at home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, armed with laptops and WiFi connections, millions more are required to show up at factories, hospitals, and grocery stores to do their jobs. The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted yet another fault line in America’s racial and socioeconomic divisions — those who can do their jobs from home and those who can’t.

As new communities go into lockdown in hopes of slowing the spread of the virus, the people most at risk for getting sick, because they must venture out, are largely people of color, those with only a high school education and those whose incomes are likely to suffer during the ongoing crisis.

Am avut revelaţia că în afară de Dumnezeu nu există adevăr. Mai multe adevăruri, zic eu, raportate la Dumnezeu, este egal cu niciun adevăr. Iar dacă adevărul este unul singur, fiind transcendent în esenţă, sediul lui nu e nici în ştiinţă, nici în filozofie, nici în artă.– Petre Țuțea
