Small Business and Precarious Work in the US: The Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted small businesses across the U.S., causing many to lose revenue or close permanently. For workers in uncertain, unpredictable, and risky workplace environments, the pandemic exacerbated the challenges they already faced. Social, behavioral, and economic science has a role to play in identifying the complexities of precarious work, including the relationship between work and health.

Join the Societal Experts Action Network and the Committee on Population for a webinar to discuss how state and local decision makers can support healthy work.
