The containment and mitigation of the c-virus necessitates the workforce de-linking from work, while a functioning economy requires the opposite, that is, dynamic integration and close connections at the local, state, national, and global level. In the face of this contradiction, priority obviously goes to the former. Meanwhile, the mitigation of a contracting economy requires immediately a generous package of social insurance —- in other words, workers and their families should be paid in full to stay home — and other counter cyclical measures. To the credit of Nancy Pelosi, the House bill takes a big step in the provision of social insurance. And were it not for the Republicans, it would have been more generous. More funding, however, will be needed to meet the expanding scope of this crisis, which like all crisis hit unevenly. In other words, this interlocking crisis falls heaviest on people of color, women, and low income workers.
