Well let's see... Unemployed women about 2.1 million. Unemployed men 1.8 million. More men dying of Covid versus women. Yeah, its been real tough for women. I'm sure that married men just loved working overtime or taking second jobs, to make up for his spouses lost income. I'm sick of hearing about how tough things have been for women in the pandemic. Its been hard on everyone. Men don't whine about it. Men just get on with burying parents, children and going right back to their jobs - all the while praying to God that he doesn't get Covid - because his family can't afford for him to get sick.
