The People's Money (2022-2023)
Your Money, Your Community, Your Voice.
What problem would you like to solve?
The face that childcare is insanely expensive. And the more affordable programs are in bad areas or not safe spaces for children,
Why is it important to solve? Why is it relevant for the community?
This is important because a lot of parents are struggling to afford childcare. I am one of those parents who is struggling to afford day care and get help. I can't get help from the government because I supposedly make too much money when in reality my check doesn't last due to my other necessary expenses. This will be relevant for the community because I know lots of parents who are also struggling to afford childcare. The government should be more understanding towards parents who work and have to afford childcare.
What idea do you have to address the problem?
A way to address this problem can be the government being more understanding towards our expenses and providing more affordable childcare or even free childcare programs for children who aren't old enough to be in school yet and whose parents have full time jobs or are full time students. They don't put to account our expenses and they automatically believe we can afford childcare due to our incomes when truth be told we really can't afford childcare on top of all of our other bills and financial responsibilities. This is difficult because most parents work and don't have help from their families. This can also affect the parent's jobs/ responsibilities as trying to work while having your young child with you can negatively affect your abilities to perform well with the task at hand.
Who would that help?
Parents that want to work and can't afford childcare
