LGBTQ Americans hit hardest by COVID economic collapse, HRC study says

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

LGBT Americans are the hardest hit by the country's economic collapse due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a new study by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) says.

"As some communities start to go back to work...we're seeing that LGBTQ people, especially LGBTQ people of color and transgender people, are being left behind," HRC President Alphonso David said in a statement.

"The data continues to reinforce what we already know - that the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is not over because the pandemic is not over, especially for communities who were already marginalized in this country."

In a survey released September 4, the HRC found that Gay and Trans people were 30% more likely to have lost their jobs since May. Black and Latinx LGBTQ Americans are also 70% more likely to have lost their jobs than the general populace.

In addition, LGBTQ employees are 20% more likely to have had hours reduced than their straight colleagues. That number rises to 44% among Gay and Trans people of color, the survey found.

In addition to the job loss reports, 50% of LGBTQ people report taking a pay cut due to economic consequences of the pandemic. For LGBT people of color, that number increases by 150%.

The research looked at the economic impact of the pandemic from the end of May, when many US states started easing lockdowns and initiating policies to reopen businesses.

Though the COVID-19 pandemic has been international in scope, the United States has been hardest hit by the pandemic, largely due to the inaction of the Trump administration.

To date, the US has reported more than 6.7 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, with more than 187,000 deaths at the time the HRC released its report.
