March 2021: New article on frontline workers and COVID-19

Which employees are most at risk of getting infected and suffering from COVID-19? In this article we argue that the burden from the global COVID-19 pandemic falls heavily on often marginalized groups working in frontline occupations (e.g., bus drivers, gricery store workers, janitors) who already face serious pre-existing health and socioeconomic disparities. To protect these vulnerable workers, we pose potential interventions at the national, community, and organizational levels.
