'If we don't open, mom can't go to work' — the pandemic puts a priority on child care

Tom Hudson writes:

"The child care industry is pivotal for parents being able to work and for children's early learning. It struggles to compete for workers.


'You see help wanted signs everywhere because it's extremely difficult to find people to work,' said Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added] Senior Policy Analyst Norín Dollard.

'Child care has historically not been a very high paying job. It's a very rewarding job. And we're really grateful to the people who do it. But it's not a lucrative occupation by any means. People (aren't) seeking jobs in the same way that they were before the pandemic,' Dollard added."
