#' Worker function that fits propensity score models

#' This function fits propensity score models and saves necessary information

#' @param X vector of the treatment (0/1)
#' @param U matrix of covariates to be considered for inclusion/exclusion
#' @param W matrix of covariates that will be included in all models (optional)
#' @param alpha vector of inclusion indicators (which columns of U) to included in the propensity score model
