Worldwide lockdown and rising infection rate of Covid-19 slowed down the economy in all countries. Restaurants, considered an essential business, took a particulary heavy hit from the lockdown. The goal of my research is to find if the effect of Covid-19 infection rate is stil as significant on restaurant workers employment probability or if restaurants found a solution.
Using the IPUMS data, USAFacts data and STATA software I observed the impact of COVID-19 infection rate in the local labor market on the probability of being employed in restaurant industry.
The results present that the situation is becoming better with time as the COVID-19 effect was twice as small in February of 2021 compared to April of 2020
