Personal support workers are in high demand – as this sign from Markham, ON indicates. They are an integral part of the healthcare system, but are racialized and underpaid.

The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the significant contribution personal support workers (PSWs) make to Canada’s health-care system. As the backbone of much of the daily health work, they assist people with disability, health and age-related needs in diverse health-care sectors and in people’s homes. It seems like every second, someone requires a PSW for their care.

America’s Fastest Growing Jobs

The makeup of the U.S. labor force is constantly changing. As recently as 30 years ago, occupations such as application software developers and solar panel installers were in their infancy. Now, those occupations employ thousands of Americans and are among the fastest growing professions in the country.

Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections program, 24/7 Wall St. identified America’s 25 fastest growing jobs. Occupations are ranked on the percentage change in employment from 2018 to 2028. Only occupations at the finest level of detail in the Standard Occupational Classification System were considered. Supplemental data on total employment, educational attainment, and typical education required by occupation are also from the BLS EP. Data on median annual wage in 2019 is from the BLS Occupational Employment Statistics program.

The jobs on this list span sectors, from academia and IT to the service industry and equipment installation and repair.

WHO ripped apart as bosses accused of prioritising China diplomacy over global health | UK | News (Reports)

The Institute of Economic Affairs think-tank pulls no punches in a new report which asks how two multi-billion pound public health agencies failed so badly at the moment of greatest need. The paper, called “You Had One Job”, said the WHO and PHE’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic had been littered with failure and incompetence because both agencies spread themselves thinly over a huge range of medical, political and social issues in the run up to the crisis.

It highlights a “catalogue of failure” triggered by a broadening in scope of the “public health” movement from infectious disease control to a focus on lifestyle regulation and various forms of “social justice”.

The IEA paper said by dropping the ball on the monitoring and tackling infectious and environmental threats to public health – the sort of “health protection” that requires government action – the WHO and PHE were left woefully unprepared

Coronavirus Threatens to Deepen Racial Disparities in Dental Health | Healthiest Communities

Ensconced in a once-hard but rapidly gentrifying corner of northeast Washington, D.C., Dimples Dental Suite has a clientele that, in normal times, largely reflects the diversity of a changing urban neighborhood.

In Dr. Takeisha Presson’s waiting room, white patients with office jobs on nearby Capitol Hill often rub elbows with working-class African Americans, the municipal clerks and bus drivers who keep the city functioning. Presson, a young, ebullient Black woman with dreadlocked hair and a radiant smile, also cares for uninsured patients or people whose treatments are subsidized by the government – typically, low-income African Americans.

But when the coronavirus pandemic swept in and shut down dental work across the country except for emergency care, Presson suddenly found herself treating patients who were almost exclusively Black and poor – people in pain who couldn’t afford a dentist but badly needed treatment. And the office phone kept ringing.
