More about the campaign:
🌹 Childcare For All 🌹
Universal Childcare will provide play-based childcare to every worker in Los Angeles County, and ensure childcare jobs are public and unionized!
Who needs Universal Childcare?
Universal childcare levels income inequality in the long term, and it provides the option for all children to have regular meals and clean, safe facilities where they can play, interact with others, learn, and grow in healthy, wholesome, and developmentally appropriate ways.
In most families, both parents work, and childcare is a necessity. Only 14% of Los Angeles infants are covered under current subsidies for childcare and 41% of all preschoolers. Working families can expect to pay a third of their annual household paycheck on child care alone. Parents deserve a sustainable and publicly-funded option for childcare!
Childcare workers and early childhood educators often work in substandard conditions, are paid a median wage of $23,760, and receive few to no benefits or workplace protections. Childcare providers deserve well-paying, union government jobs with full benefits and protections!
All Working People!
Childcare is so expensive that some people delay or forgo having a family. Just like public education, we shouldn’t be paying out of pocket for something that is essential to our children and society! We need universal childcare just like we need to continue funding public education, so everyone can grow, learn, and flourish.
