Envoy Conversations: A Closer Look at Covid-19’s Impact on Immigrants, the Labor Market and the Economy
The spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has had a significant impact on the U.S economy, leaving a record number of people in various industries unemployed. Despite these conditions, proprietary research from New American Economy (NAE) shows that immigrants in the U.S. are playing a critical role in the national response to COVID-19 and the part they will play in recovery as states look to reopen their economies.
These individuals continue to contribute to the overall well-being of the U.S. economy and broader society, from working on the frontlines of the pandemic as doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to filling essential roles in technology and manufacturing.
About this Event
Hanna Siegel, Managing Director at NAE, will present new research on the contributions of immigrants in critical fields such as healthcare, education, technology and manufacturing. Joined by Envoy’s Head of Product Development Greg Liegel, Siegel will also discuss the economic impact of COVID-19 on industries such as hospitality and retail and the role immigrant workers will play in ensuring future economic recovery.
