North Dakota’s child care crisis has been building for decades, and the state can no longer ignore the needs of working families. The lack of affordable, quality, accessible child care has a significant, negative impact on employers and employees alike.
Child care businesses are struggling to stay open and are often left with little choice but to pay their workers low wages. Most child care workers earn poverty-level wages.
SB 2301 would “establish a child care stabilization program to address child care workforce shortages”. Improving child care is a common-sense, bipartisan solution and is essential for strong families and a strong economy in North Dakota and is a critical step toward increasing access to affordable, quality child care.
