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.
A panel of researchers and advocates will discuss issues at the intersection of childcare and the labor market during this FedTalk hosted by the Cleveland Fed. Audience Q&A will follow the discussion.
