By: Gabriela Gonzalez, Sr. Strategic Planner | August 20, 2014

Have you heard the term “clopens”? Chances are you haven’t and that you are privileged with a predictable schedule.

Technology has brought a myriad of efficiencies to our lives, however scheduling technology is one area in particular where the benefits it brings to the bottom-line of companies is bringing chaos to low-income workers.

This poses a tremendous threat to not only working moms, but also to a generation who is looking up to and relying on this type of job to support themselves and get ahead in their pursuit of their bigger dreams.

Clopen is the act of closing at work one day and opening the next day.
