In a recent online article called “Child-care centers struggle to staff up, fanning fears workers have left the industry for good” Nadine El-Bawab wrote:
“The Biden administration has said that employment issues and lack of access to child care stem from years of underinvestment, which the president plans to reverse with $450 billion in proposed spending as part of his American Families Plan. Of that, $225 billion will be dedicated to child-care cost subsidies. The plan aims to make sure families are paying no more than 7% of their income for child-care costs.”
