Too Long; Didn't Read

21.1% of working mothers lost their jobs when the pandemic hit early March, with mass school closing and slow opening, according to the Census Bureau, in the US. Even when schools start reopening and childcare centers become available again, 1 in 6 childcare workers, most of whom women, lost their job. This leads to fewer options for working parents when it comes to childcare, which is integral to their ability to work. Population is shrinking because women don't want to be working mothers.
