  • Where are the dads ?. How are only women/mothers affected by this ?.with due respect to all single parents respective to the reasons . How come both parents make a kid /s , and they live in one house hold and it’s all mom’s responsibility ?. It’s a pandemic I get it , social distancing makes more sense than day care but how on earth is it only affecting women when kids have both parents living in one house ?. My point is sexism was never dealt with from the beginning.

  • The problem with Republican attitudes is they think there's no historical precedent for childcare and women working. They think it's some kind of modern thing, but they don't look further back than Victorian times or they only look at white history. But people taking care of each other's kids and women having occupations is a very old practice.

  • Let's be realistic: until the roles are reversed and men have to start staying home with the kids while the women are working, nothing will change. Most of the lawmakers and CEOs are men with stay-at-home wives taking care of everything, so it doesn't affect them at all. They don't know what it's like to need two incomes just to make ends meet and ensure your children have everything they need.

  • My department has made everything flexible for everyone. We have to attend meetings, but we can divide up our day however we choose as long as we get our work completed on time. I stop working during my daughter's classes, and I can take a moment to give her mommy time without being frustrated by "interruptions". I can also do a lot of my work after she is in bed. Because I can be available to her for much of the day, she isn't upset (most of the time) when I have moments when I can't give her attention. I know many jobs just die to the nature of the job can't accommodate that setup. As a single mother with a special needs child, I truly recognized how lucky I am in this situation.

  • The system is systematically killing the dreams of those at the helm of our fabric of our existence. Women/Procreation. Payment of child care services has been through the roof without regulation. Even child care centers are closed , parents still have to pay. Ridiculous stealing tactics. As mothers we know that child care is childcare. They make childcare into some magical world where you bring children. There are many retired people/ women who are very capable of giving childcare in the safest way, for a cheaper pay. They just want to help, but the system has stifled every which way and how they can do it.

  • The ratio of females that lose their jobs first, or have to quit their jobs first, due to 'economic of social' changes has historically been something that needs to change in society at large! Access to childcare is important. As a single working mother in the usa, I couldn't have done without it. The system is systemically broken, and at a huge disadvantage towards females. Both in salary and promotion opportunities, as well as the people having to quit their jobs, or getting fired, due to economic or social changes, are usually disproportionately female.

    southern4comfort4realsouthern4comfort4realAcum 9 Zile
  • We have an opportunity to avoid some of that damage. How do we do that? One, *we need men to step up and do more work at home.* If the amount of work has gotten bigger now that the kids are home, we need to balance the shares more. That way, employers will recognize that they have to cut parents slack if it’s not just the female parents, but all parents who need a bit more slack. And the other thing is public policy: I think we’re going to *need a set of tax incentives and other policies that encourage employers to hire back women who took time out of the labor force to deal with schools being closed.* We can shout 'the schools need to open' as much as we want. They’re not all going to open. So given that, what else do we do? I think we need to be providing emergency child care grants to make sure there’s child care in every community for workers who have to do in-person jobs. For lower-earning households, we could expand Head Start in a socially distanced way: If the high schools are closed, turn them all into Head Start rooms, and let’s provide care for smaller children. Let’s make sure that lower-income households have the care that they need, that people who must do in-person work have the care that they need, and then let’s do what we can to help reroute people back into the labor force as we get past this. We will get past this pandemic. But the work of recovering from it will not end just because we have a vaccine.

  • The assumption here is that women are being equated to mothers... while women CAN be mothers, increasingly women are either choosing not to have kids or postponing motherhood so this doesn’t apply to all women. I’ve been to Finland though and I do think the US would benefit from a generous childcare policy. It’s hard to say if that would move the needle back to average childbearing age to 28 years old. I really don’t know. Scandinavian countries have generous social programs but the women still choose to have 1 maybe 2 kids on average.

  • What I do not understand: Where are the fathers and husbands? Why are the women affected more than men? Do the mothers chose to stay home while the father is working? The only real reason for that would be: If one parent has to stay home, it should be the one earning less...which ATM is the mother most of the time. If this is the reason, why not say so? The whole clip I was waiting for why the mothers stay home and not the fathers and how to fix that....but it never came. If an essential scientist has to stay home and leave work on COVID...what is the father working on that is more important? This clip seems to say: You are female, you have to stay home with your kid. It fails to show why...

    • We still haven’t fully balanced child care and adult care responsibilities among men and women. If you’re working from home, as kids see both parents trying to work, do they go to mommy or daddy first? You know, if the kids are biased and run to mom more, that’s going to have a bigger impact on her career. Why would the kids be biased? Well, the kids are biased because of patterns of behavior in the household that mean even when spouses try to share responsibilities, inequality means that mom’s picking up more than her share. Women, for a very long time, have been doing more than their share of caregiving. And now, during the pandemic, the amount of caregiving has just gone up enormously. If you look at how caregiving responsibilities erode a woman’s career, it takes a long time. It’s about not accepting the job that’s going to push you further in your career, because it’s going to conflict with your family. It’s about taking part-time work so that you get more time at home. It’s about choosing the job that has the most flexibility. It’s about choosing the job with the shortest commute. Those are the trade-offs. And those trade-offs end up giving them less opportunity, fewer opportunities for promotions or raises. That’s why you see much bigger gender gaps for women by age 50 than you saw at age 30. These things just happen slowly over time. Even though the pandemic has come as a big crisis and we saw the labor market crater, I think the impact of the child care crisis on women’s outcomes is going to be felt over the next decade.
