The Breadwinners


Jul 9, 2020

Oddly enough, workplace policies created by straight white men for straight white men without caregiving responsibilities don’t seem to be working these days. In this episode, Julie Kashen, director of Women's Economic Justice and senior fellow at the Century Foundation, joins Rachael to talk about our nation’s approach to child care — and why it's time for change. “We all need to come together to say ‘This is what’s best for all of us.’ We need a significant federal investment in this sector so that we can all afford good care, we can come back to work as the economy recovers, and we can pay the people who provide the care what they’re actually worth.” — Julie Kashen Please rate, review and subscribe to The Breadwinners anywhere you listen to podcasts.
