African Americans Hit By Job Losses During The Pandemic Find It Hard To Recover

Robin Grinston’s world turned upside down in March when she had to shut down the massage therapy business she started two years ago.

She joined business owners throughout the St. Louis region and closed her doors to help keep the coronavirus from spreading.

Grinston, of Belleville, thought she’d only have to stop seeing clients for a short time.

“Months went by. I'm like, 'When are we going back to work?'” recalled Grinston, 31. “The whole time my landlord asking for money, you know. I'm like, ‘We're not working.’ Like how can we pay anything? At that point, I got into a deep depression.”
