I've been at the same job for almost 16 years. Last year I applied for another job internally which I really wanted. I got offered the job, but the new position would not accommodate my child care pickup which was changed to shorter hours due to COVID. So, I had to turn down the job. That was my first sort of ‘this is what being a single mom is going to be like’ moment. They wouldn’t let me change my schedule by half an hour.
