Survey: Caregiving Is Keeping Americans From Rejoining Workforce

A new survey by the Census Bureau shows 6.6 million Americans aren’t in the U.S. workforce because they are caring for sick or aging parents, spouses, or siblings. As spotlighted by the National Association of Manufacturers, four times as many people are out of the workforce due to caring for spouses, siblings, aging parents, and grandchildren than are out of the workforce caring for their own children. 4/6/2022
