Betsey Stevenson, States News Service: "I think that the important takeaway is that women can be an important source of labor for the construction industry. While child care is important for women, it is equally important to note that construction as an industry risks losing more male workers due to child care conflicts. The child care requirements in the CHIPS Act is there to help ensure a sufficient workforce is able to take on the work that is being funded."
