Lack of affordable childcare has been an issue for many workers, especially low- and moderate-income workers, for some time. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated these issues, contributing to reduced labor supply and high job vacancy rates.
We gather a panel of researchers and advocates to discuss issues at the intersection of childcare and the labor market. Audience Q&A will follow the discussion.
