Unpaid childcare is an invisible subsidy to companies and the economy—it’s time to change that

 

Our CEO, Kasey Edwards, wrote an opinion piece for Fortune Magazine laying out the dire need for childcare and paid caregiving. Society is finding itself especially in need now, during the coronavirus outbreak.

Kasey states, “as we knew all along, there's a tremendous amount of unpaid labor that goes into care even beyond primary care, and we need solutions for the childcare gaps to keep our kids healthy and all of us productive.”

Read on in the piece, as Kasey explains a working model that allows parents to receive a subsidy to take care of their child.

We're encouraging donations to the National Domestic Workers Alliance's coronavirus fund, which is supporting the incomes of quarantined caregivers and domestic workers right now.
