Child care staffing crisis with Emma Arkell

Yesterday (February 20) was Family Day, so we thought we'd bring you a family-themed discussion. This episode of Gen Squeeze's Hard Truths podcast features an interview with freelance labour journalist Emma Arkell. We chat about Emma's recent feature for Chatelaine on the child care staffing crisis. Low wages, poor working conditions, lack of opportunities for career advancement, feeling disrespected — these are among the issues that are leading child care workers to leave the sector in high numbers. This, in turn, is putting the promise of $10-a-day child care in jeopardy.
