Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Nov. 30. Tiziana Dearing is our host.
- Most child care centers have re-opened in Massachusetts, but many fear they don't have enough testing capacity to handle another coronavirus surge. We get the latest from WBUR Edify editor Kathleen McNerney.
- We look at what the research tells us about how the pandemic has affected families with Boston College Research Professor Brad Harrington. He's the executive director of the Boston College Center for Work and Family.
- The pandemic is disproportionately affecting working women, driving many of them to drop out of the workforce entirely. Latinx women have left the workforce at nearly three times the rate of white women and more than four times the rate of African Americans. We take listener calls and discuss with former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift. We also hear from Kim Borman of the Boston Women's Workforce Council and Rosario Ubiera-Minaya, the executive director of Amplify Latinx.
