Care Economy

by Community Change | September 22, 2017 2:29 pm

The fast-growing homecare and childcare sectors, where an overwhelmingly female workforce is excluded from many basic labor protections, can and must be transformed in the interest of workers, children, elders, the disabled, and communities.

The Care Economy campaign promotes making high-quality child care available to working parents, increasing access to paid family leave, childcare subsidies, and support for new parents or unpaid caregivers, and creating more, better quality jobs with benefits and a family-sustaining wage in the care fields.
