This week, Vice President Biden outlined a bold plan to help struggling child care centers, provide universal Pre-K for all children ages 3 and 4, and ease the financial burden for caregivers.
A SERIES OF PLANS
Covering care for small children, older adults, and family members with disabilities.
Public pre-k, child care tax credits up to $16,000, and eliminating the waiting list for home and community care under Medicaid.
3 million new jobs over the next decade, and even more after accounting for people able to enter the workforce instead of serving as unpaid, at-home caregivers.
From the New York Times
“Families are squeezed emotionally and financially,” Mr. Biden said in the speech. “They need help, but too often they can’t afford it.”
Professional caregivers, he added, “are too often underpaid, unseen and undervalued.”
Mr. Biden’s proposals are intended to appeal to voters who are now more acutely aware of how essential caregivers are, as the health crisis has shuttered schools — a source of child care for many Americans — and limited the options to care for older relatives who are more vulnerable to the coronavirus.
But they are also aimed at the caregivers themselves, promising more jobs and higher pay. His campaign estimated that the new spending would create three million new jobs in the next decade, and even more after accounting for people able to enter the work force instead of serving as unpaid, at-home caregivers.READ THE ARTICLE AT NYTIMES.COM
