This puts 2025 air superiority in the palms of your hands, along with limited edition physical items and a cache of exclusive digital content. Marita Stonework recently decided to step away from full-time work at her busy, senior-level job as a project manager for a Milwaukee-area consulting firm.
“I would have to essentially stop paying attention to the emails and the phone calls from work to be able to keep them engaged in what they were supposed to be doing,” she said. When her kids needed her attention, and she couldn't focus on work, she said she'd use vacation time.
Women all over the state are confronting the same difficult choices, and many are bearing the brunt of the economic impact of the pandemic. Economists and legal experts say it might be decades before we understand the full effects.
Over the summer, Melissa Paragraph was laid off from a job with a food distributor that she’d had for more than a decade. “My husband and I were pretty much equal breadwinners,” said Paragraph, who lives in Echo, about an hour's drive northeast from Wausau.
The family has cut back on all its expenses, canceling cable and other nonessential. Paragraph feels like she couldn’t safely go back to work, even if she found a job at a bar or restaurant.
In the first part of 2020, before the pandemic, women in Wisconsin experienced slightly less joblessness than men. In February, men in Wisconsin had an unemployment rate of 3.8 percent while their female counterparts had an unemployment rate of 2 .3 percent, according to data provided by the state Department of Workforce Development.
Tony Evers' now-defunct stay-at-home order, Wisconsin women saw their unemployment rate skyrocket to more than 18 percent, double the size of the unemployment rate for men, which sat at 9 percent the same month. That may be in part because, in addition to their jobs, women are often also responsible for much of the housework and child care, Williams said.
Tessa Conroy, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, worries this imbalance may lead to women leaving the workforce altogether. The impact of women reducing their hours or leaving their jobs altogether has broader implications for the economy, Conroy said.
In the near-term for individual women, Conroy said changes in work hours could also mean the loss of employer-sponsored health coverage and retirement contributions. “It can be difficult to get back on the same earnings trajectory after a period of joblessness, especially during a recession.
Among those concerned few was a young politician, Theodore Roosevelt, who would later become president and whose lasting legacy would be rescuing large portions of America's natural landscape from destruction. In 1889, the well-known English author Rudyard Kipling described his visit to Yellowstone in dispatches that he wrote for overseas newspapers.
Under Captain Charles Young, the first black man to be put in charge of a national park, soldiers built the first trail to Mount Whitney and erected protective fences around the big trees in Sequoia National Park. Like their counterparts in Yellowstone, the troops in California operated without clear legal authority and had no power to arrest and prosecute criminals.
In 1892, Muir and a handful of prominent Californians formed the Sierra Club to help promote Yosemite's protection. But Brandon Leave, a 28-year-old husband and father, figured out a winning way to wipe out his college debt this fall.
“The moment that I finally get my winnings, my plan is to pay off my student loan debt,” Leave said. “America's Got Talent” winner Brandon Leave (center), with host Terry Crews (l) and judge Howie Manuel (r).
“There's been a pause on all student loan payments that have had to be made, which has been a huge blessing, I know, for not just myself but a plethora of other people,” he said. In August, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that extended the relief through the end of the year.
Leave worked as an academic advisor at a local community college in his hometown of Stockton, California, before his big win. “There used to be a time in which going to college would assure you a secure position of work in which you would be able to financially be able to pay them off within the course of 15 to 20 years,” Leave said.
