The pandemic is now in its second year, and most Americans have had to deal with significant changes in their lives because of it – in their health, social life, and finances. Millions of people have lost their jobs – working mothers and people of color have suffered especially – and millions more live paycheck to paycheck. At the same time, many others have saved more money than ever during the pandemic because they kept their jobs and had fewer expenses.
