Efforts to Benefit Caregivers

In addition to the caregiver credit there are many important solutions that need to be enacted to better support people with caregiving responsibilities, such as paid sick days, paid family leave and flexible workplaces.

  •  Visit Family Values At Work to learn about organizing for better policies for workers with caregiving responsibilities.
  •  We also need to ensure that caregiving jobs are quality jobs. Too many workers who provide critical services such as child care and long term care struggle in extremely low-wage jobs.  Caring Across Generations is a campaign to transform long term care in America by making sure workers who provide critical home care services have access to a quality job, and all families have the resources needed to pay for care.
  •  Visit the National Domestic Workers Alliance to learn about campaigns to improve working conditions for workers who provide child care and other critical care giving services.
