  • Mothers make their way back to work

    Axios - 11/15/2021

    • That means more schools will be able to fully reopen and stay open, and the child care constraints that are keeping parents — usually mothers — at home will fade.
    • Wages are also increasing, which could be playing a role in bringing working moms back, Modestino says.
