The COVID-19 pandemic' exposed the fragility of our community ecosystem with the clash among the public health and economics interest. This phenomenon demonstrated clear conflict at the time of arguments in pro and cons about the reopening or closing of the commerce and school sector. Meantime, the number of active workers fell almost 25 million in the first quarter of 2020 as the outbreak impacted the economy nationwide. Despite partial reopening, overall, job losses remain sizable, with estimated employment falling by 13% from February to May. The recession has not equally impacted all citizens (PEW, 2020). Minorities and other groups such as Hispanic women, migrants, young adults, and those with a lesser extent of education suffered more the impact.
