      TO WORK?

         Late summer is always a busy time with students
      heading back to school. This year, parents are breathing
      a collective sigh of relief across Palm Beach County as
      children return to in-person schooling. An unfortunate
      reality, as many studies have revealed over the past year,
      is that the home-schooling and childcare responsibilities
      disproportionately fell on mothers, with many electing to
      leave their careers altogether. Economists have revealed
      that while 3.7 million men lost or left their jobs during
      the pandemic, 4.5 million women have lost theirs.
         The hospitality, retail, restaurant, and travel sectors
      had many businesses closed during the pandemic and are                                SUSAN
      now slowly reopening and rehiring as the economy revs
      up. Many people have opted to not return to those jobs,                                                                            Boca Pointe
