Connie Saldaña is a community worker at Mujeres Latinas En Acción in Chicago. Like many of us she was sent to work from home at the beginning of the pandemic with the idea it would only be a few weeks. Her husband, a laborer, was still going into work. He contracted Covid early in the pandemic and almost died.

She also contracted covid while taking care of her husband but continued working her 40 hours a week for fear of losing income. She was a care taker to her husband, battling Covid and making herself available to the community at the same time. Studies show that mothers are 3 times more likely to lose their job during coronavirus.
