``... workforce inequality is probably the most significant rift brought to the fore by Covid-19. Only about a third of U.S. workers said they could work at home last year, and most of those are in white-collar, higher-paying jobs with good health care and paid leave policies. Many of the so-called "essential" jobs, such as blue-collar workers that are keeping factories running making toilet paper and sanitation products, or those responsible for staffing pharmacies and delivering groceries, have no option to work from home, and are less likely to have paid leave and health coverage. They are also more likely to be women or people of color.''
