Child care in this country is in crisis. Many families require two incomes to meet their needs, and child care is required to allow parents to work. Even before the pandemic, child care costs were unaffordable for families and did not provide a living wage for employees. Please include child care relief in any stimulus package that passes so that these essential businesses can stay open and enable our economic recovery. Child care should be high quality and universal so that all children can be safe and reach their potential.
