For many of us, Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day is an opportunity to spend time with our children and proudly show them the work we do. But for millions of working families, it's no holiday, as they are forced to bring their children to work because they can't find child care.
Are the richest parents really buying better care for their kids? Or just shinier care? If you are struggling to pay the "mid-range" salary, are you somehow not doing right by your child?
We need government-subsidized daycare. We're one of the only industrialized nations in the world that doesn't meet this most basic need for its working families.
