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.

Speakers:

  • Jason Faberman, Senior Economist and Economic Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
  • Katie Kelly, Executive Director, PRE4CLE
  • Laura Justice, CCEC Executive Director, EHE Distinguished Professor, The Ohio State University

Moderated by Bruce Fallick, Senior Vice President, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
