Women’s Return to the Workforce Piles Momentum on a Hot Economy

In Las Vegas, Alma Lozoya, 34, is back at work after she was let go from her hostess and cashier job at a casino in early 2020 amid shutdowns. She lost her health insurance, a challenge given two of her three children have health issues. 

“I couldn’t afford living on my own,” she said.

She and her children moved in with Ms. Lozoya’s parents, who provided financial support and helped her two school-age children with virtual learning. Their return to in-person classrooms helped ease Ms. Lozoya’s transition back to work as a casino porter in late 2021.
