Day Care Workers Seek Union
Yes, those who take care of our kids are some of the worst paid and most deserving people in society.
Teachers should be paid like sports stars, given what they do to shape our world.
Now, childcare workers are seeking to get a fair wage.
Here’s one summary: “Child care is prohibitively expensive for even middle-class families in much of California. At the same time, the majority of the workers who care for the state’s youngest children are paid so little they qualify for public assistance themselves, according to one estimate. Now, with the state coffers flush, many providers are pushing for this bill — along with a whole slew of child care related legislation aimed at making things easier for families and providers alike.”
