The latest issue of Consumer Connection, the Department of Consumer Affairs’ quarterly magazine, is available now.
In this issue, we examine the rapid job growth forecast in health care fields; we look at gender stereotypes that factor into why more girls do not grow up to work in STEM or STEAM fields; we find out what it takes to be licensed as a professional boxer; and we brace ourselves for the return of the perm, the hairstyle you thought you left in the 1980s!
In our cover story, we explore a new law that waives pet adoption fees for military veterans when they adopt at animal shelters throughout the state. The “Pets For Vets” law went into effect on January 1.
