What's Facing Working Families as U.S. Moves to Reopen Economy

6-Jul-2020 11:50 AM EDT, by University of Delaware

Bahira Trask is a cultural anthropologist who studies the relationship between social change, economics, gender and family life. In April, she spoke to some of the emerging issues around stay-at-home orders related to COVID-19, noting the pressure facing professional people with young children who were now “expected to be equally productive, or in some cases, more productive because they have ‘time off’ now. That has no basis in reality.”  

Now the move to reopen the economy has led to some public missteps by companies and institutions, such as when Florida State University had to step back from a decision to tell employees that they would no longer be able to care for their children while working remotely.

Dr. Trask can speak to the unique challenges facing working parents, including those juggling the demands of returning to a job when plans for school reopening are still up in the air in many communities.
