Description

Initial findings regarding the coronavirus crisis’ impact on the German labor market 
suggest that the existing dynamics of inequality will worsen in two respects – both 
between the sexes, and within the group of women alone. One thing is certain: Mothers 
in particular will lose out, as the following analysis shows that even before the crisis, 
children already cost mothers up to two-thirds of their lifetime earnings.
