Slowing the revolving door + Early childhood unions + Clean H2O

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Child care providers have clearly taken note of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plans to support early childhood initiatives. A group of 200 workers, advocates and family members are heading to the Capitol this morning in efforts to form a union and rally behind the Building a Better Early Care and Education System Act that Assemblywoman Monique Limón, D-Goleta, plans to introduce.

Providers say that programs are too expensive and that outdated laws discriminate against women of color who make up a significant portion of the workforce, yet often struggle in poverty themselves. Limón’s bill would push for better wages and benefits and expand access to care.
