It took a pandemic, but we are seeing how child care, paid leave and home and community care are essential infrastructures to a strong economy — just like roads, bridges and broadband, families and workers need care.
We need permanent investments in our care infrastructure — universal child care, universal, permanent paid leave, universal access to home and community-based services, family-sustaining jobs in our care economy, with living wages, a union and a path to citizenship for the immigrant workforce.
If we invest in and value care for the essential work that it is, we can speed an economic recovery that is swift, equitable and sustainable for all of us.
