FedTalk: Access to Childcare and Labor Market Participation

March 22 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm EDT

Children in daycare facility, FedTalk: Sharing our Work with Our Communities

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.
