How Has The Pandemic Changed Your Work Life And Financial Situation?

How has the pandemic affected your life? We're listening.
How has the pandemic affected your life? We're listening.

As the country emerges from the worst pandemic in a century, NPR wants to know how life has changed for you. Has the pandemic affected your employment situation, your ability to pay your rent or mortgage, your other household finances, your business, if you have one, and your ability to juggle work and child care.

Over the past year and a half, some employers have permanently closed their doors, but now many others are ramping back up and hiring all the workers they can find. Many Americans spending patterns changed dramatically as they hunkered down at home, and now they're changing again as people flock back to restaurants and plan vacations.

As we all try to get back to something like normal, we want to know: How are you coping?

Sharing your story helps us understand what Americans are facing right now and helps our reporting.
