The COVID-19 pandemic has led to massive economic upheaval and millions of people are now unemployed across the United States. Behind the unemployment statistics are real people struggling to get by. As part of our reporting, we want to tell those stories to our readers and listeners. 

If you have a story about losing your job, going back to work (or not) or struggling to get assistance that you want to share with Marketplace, fill out the form below and one of our reporters may contact you. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
