Por qu茅 las trabajadoras de cuidado infantil se beneficiar谩n de uniones sindicales

Oct 14, 2019

For 25 years, I鈥檝e woken up long before the sun and opened the doors to my family child care business by 5 a.m every day.

Before the last parent arrives for pickup around 11 p.m., I鈥檒l have welcomed 14 young children into my home, sung dozens of songs, prepared scores of meals, and taught a curriculum that readies my little learners for the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics education they鈥檒l receive in K-12 schools.

At the end of this year, I鈥檒l close those doors for the last time as I retire. After decades of back-breaking, heart-warming and emotionally exhausting work, I鈥檓 ready for a new chapter. And I鈥檓 proud that I鈥檝e been a part of transforming the child care system so the next generation of child care providers will start in a much stronger position than I did.
