FEB 7 Briefing – States of Child Care in America

If families in every state were able to access affordable child care, the returns from increased labor force participation would amount to approximately $59 billion annually, boosting U.S. gross domestic product by roughly 1.2 percent. Work is a fact of
life for most parents of very young children, yet child care costs, particularly for infants and toddlers, can take over half of families’ earned income. In 28 states and Washington, D.C., center-based child care for infants and toddlers is more expensive
than in-state tuition and fees at a public university.

Reintroducing the FAMILY Act

People across the country are working hard to make ends meet, yet the nation fails to provide the support they need to manage the demands of job and family, and that businesses and our economy need to thrive. A mere 17 percent of the workforce has paid family
leave through their employers, and less than 40 percent has personal medical leave through an employer-provided disability program. When people have to forgo pay or lose a job when a serious medical or caregiving need arises, they often jeopardize their ability
