In this story, a young woman, Clarice, has just started her job as a social worker, and meets a mother of four children who has been hiding her youngest from case workers. Clarice determines that the mother is owed arrears for the child’s upkeep but then ends up in trouble with her supervisor over the issue. The story segues into Rosemarie’s reflection about her choice of social work as a profession and the need for changes in our nation’s budget priorities toward livable wages for everyone, high quality child care, and universal health care.
