U-M Ford School of Public Policy professor of economics and public policy Betsey Stevenson discusses the temporary provisions of the $1.9 trillion relief package and economic difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stevenson notes that the temporary provisions lifting low-income families set up a “fairer society,” especially as in increase in revenue allows individuals to pay for necessary things. Though, the faculty expert explains that this may have arrived too late for many women in the health and education industries since it “got hit really hard.” Stevenson further elaborates on the divorce rate in terms of economic hardship and changing family formation patterns.
