The Sudden Impact Caring for an Aging Family Can Have May Be Similar to Losing Daycare Options for Young Parents 

Unexpected circumstances can cause just about anyone to call their employer and ask for the day off.

Wisconsin’s Aggressive Crackdown on Medicaid Fraud May Have Hurt Some In-Home Health Care Nurses 

When Wisconsin’s former governor Scott Walker set about to crack down on Medicaid fraud, it was an ambitious undertaking. Medicaid fraud costs the federal and state governments billions of dollars every year.
