Throughout the past year, the coronavirus pandemic has taken a lot from us. Our health, our livelihoods, not to mention serious economic pitfalls for everyday Americans. But an often underreported area of concern centers around childcare. Specifically, how a lack of adequate and affordable childcare has funneled millions of working women out of the labor force. The Center for American Progress finds that the total losses in wages and economic activity could near $64.5 billion as a result of mothers leaving the labor force and reducing work hours to care for young children.
This massive flow of working mothers out of the labor force has clear ramifications for the economy. What is needed is a more accessible solution to childcare. In short, working families need more options for childcare. This is where you come in.
