Next100 policy entrepreneur Levi Bohanan and GenForward’s executive director Dr. Cathy Cohen write in Fortune that policymakers should listen to young adults who deem access to affordable, high-quality childcare an important issue.
Bohanan and Cohen write:
“It turns out that millennials and Gen Zers care about childcare—a lot. Three in four millennial and Gen Z individuals who identify as women say that the lack of access to affordable childcare is a barrier to their professional success. The pandemic has proved them correct, and resoundingly so: Just last week, the U.S. Census Bureau released new data finding that lack of childcare has driven one in three millennial women out of the workforce.”
