Hedge Fund Launches Jump Despite Equity Market Declines

Last year was a bumper year for hedge fund launches. According to a Hedge Fund Research report released towards the end of March, 614 new funds hit the market in 2021. That was the highest number of launches since 2017, when a record 735 new hedge funds were rolled out to investors. What’s interesting about Read More

  • Essential workers: Fast food, healthcare, childcare, construction, grocery, delivery, Uber/Lyft

WHY: 

As essential workers keep us safe, fed, and healthy, they lack basic protections to ensure their safety and wellbeing. Not only do families worry about contracting COVID-19, but they also have to worry about who will take care of their kids while they work, how they’ll pay for medical bills, and how they’ll make ends meet.

These workers are also disproportionately people of color, and they are being hit the hardest by COVID-19. In Santa Clara County, despite being 27% of the population, Latinx residents account for 33% of reported infection and 34% of fatalities. While black people only make up 2% of the county population, they account for 6% of COVID-19 deaths.

Although these workers never signed up to be on the front lines of a global pandemic, they continue to do so, and they are ultimately the experts in their own needs. During the panel discussion, essential workers from fast food, healthcare, childcare, construction, grocery, delivery, and Uber/Lyft will share their experiences and have a conversation with Congressman Ro Khanna and Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez about potential solutions.
