Workers' well-being in the context of the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. By: Nieuwenhuis, Rense; Yerkes, Mara A. Community, Work & Family. Apr2021, Vol. 24 Issue 2, p226-235. 10p.

In this Voices article, we use emerging evidence to reflect on the consequences of Covid-19 for various aspects of workers’ wellbeing. This brief review emphasises how COVID-19 exacerbates existing, well-understood inequalities, along the intersections of community, work, and family. Workers on the periphery of the labour market, including non-standard workers and the self-employed, but also women and low-paid workers, are experiencing significant losses in relation to work, working hours and/or wages. Even once the pandemic is contained, its impact will continue to be felt by many communities, workers, and families for months and years to come.
