Recently an Oregon mother told me that “if child care crumbles, if it gets even a fraction more difficult to find, then our collective ability to work crumbles too.” Finding quality care for her children was so time-consuming it felt like a second job. Even though she eventually found a pre-school for her older child, she had to rely on a combination of babysitters and family for her infant because care for very young children is expensive and difficult to find.
