    In fertile Wisconsin, child care deserts leave families struggling.

    A mother’s been asked to get to work in Sauk City. It was her day off – one that she was looking forward to – but someone called in sick and the business needs her help. She’s got her toddlers, though, who can’t be left at the house. There’s no one, but her, to care for them. She needs the money but she can’t afford to go in. There are a few child care centers in the area but they’ve long since booked up.
